This was my scrap therapy project, something new for me. I was dealing with a lot of negative emotions, so I decided to try this.
The bg piece started out white and I journalled all my thoughts and feelings around the page starting on the outside edge and ending in the very middle. Then I inked all over it with distress inks, splattered some black paint behind my title letters, tore the edges and a piece out of the middle, then added the border punched paper behind it. All the edges of the bg paper and the mats on the photo and the strips of PP are distressed. I tore the pic in 3 and hand stitched it back together. I made all the black bling flourishes myself with puffy paint. The hearts, I painted with linen & navy paint, then added some black paint smudges. I cut "pieces of" on my sil, and put on with pop dots. The "me" I painted as I did the hearts, but then sanded them. The point of this was to be able to get all my negative feelings out for the world to "see" but I didn't want people to be able to read them, which is why all the distressing. I love how this turned out...it really portrays how I sometimes feel...with the tearing, some sweet parts like the hearts and flowers, but a little bit of chaos too.
