It was liberating to create art while expressing this obstacle in my life. When exploring an emotion, I encourage you to go deep. Be bluntly honest on a page and just let the feeling take you. It is better than therapy.
I often have the best intentions, yet say the wrong thing. What I mean and what comes out don't always correspond. Here is my interpretation of the feeling.
I love the dripping paint paper that is in the kit. I decided to cut mine so just the upper portion was used. It really evoked the feeling of a bleeding heart. With that idea in mind, I cut the heart from a journaling card and placed it along the top. There is so much symbolism on this page.
To really make the drips pop, I used a white cardstock base. I layered some simple embellishments to frame my photo, including the days of the week card. This is an emotion that strikes me frequently. It is something I have to be aware of every day.
And then I told my story. I didn't hold back. I am not ashamed. I am aware. I want to be understood and forgiven. I want this to be a transparent issue in my world. I am working on it. In the meantime, I have decided to surround myself with people who love me unconditionally. Through that, change will come.
My intentions are clear and pure.
