sabbat art journal inspiration

Was listening to a scrapbooking podcast yesterday in which the speakers were talking about how they'd scrapbook pages related to the theme of the season, ie., around Valentine's day they'd scrap stories about love in their lives.

I think this is a pretty great idea and am thinking about ways to incorporate it into my artsy life. I know I've been a little off the art journaling lately but I just needed a break after working so long on so many pages. But now that I've been a bit of scrapbooking fiend, I'm looking forward to getting back in with the paints. And I'm thinking that for the next sabbat (Ostara) that I'm going to try creating pages that reflect the theme of the Spring Equinox.

I suspect that many of you out there wondered why I never really did this during last year's adventure, but honestly, it's because I wanted to do something that was just devoted to that, without anything else. And I think it's a great way to really get into the spirit of the season and embrace the mood of each particular turn of the wheel.

With that in mind, here's my brain-dump of all the things that I immediately think of when I think Ostara:

  • eggs
  • pastels
  • birth
  • fertility
  • energy
  • spring fever
  • thawing
  • snowdrops, crocuses, tulips and daffodils (can you tell I grew up on the west coast?)
  • cleaning
  • freshness
  • crisp air
  • light
  • joy
  • melting snow
  • break (rest)
  • relief
  • excitement
What would you add to the list? You know, so I can blatantly use you all as a source of inspiration!
