I used a picture of my shadow since there in no emotion attached. It could represent any part of me. I then used the stencil in the kit as is, placing it down as another piece of paper. It was a last minute addition and brought the page to a new level. I wanted this page to have the blacks and jagged edged patterns to symbolize my angry feelings.
I chose sayings that communicated my feelings. I loved the black speech bubble and thought it was the perfect touch for my theme. I put the truth circle in the middle because I am sharing a truth about a part of me.
I layered the white grid paper to create a background to journal on. I was honest and open. I placed all the elements along the bottom in a random pattern. I love the idea of running from the anger, yet placing the word "trying" in the middle of the golden frame. Most importantly, I am trying.
