This journal is intended to help me get my emotions out, page by page, as things unfold in this journey I am documenting them in art. I use to write poetry, I was pretty good, I have been published a time or two. But life changes you, and your interests and way of expressing yourself either matures or digresses, I don't know which. But this is how I'm doing 'me' right now.
Page two - As much as I hate this saying, and believe me I do ... "It is what it is" It is just that ... it IS what it is ... and you can't change it. It ... is ... cancer. It ... will be ... death. Moving on ... notice on this page the key? That was a cool technique, I used Versamark and platinum embossing powder in several layers then while the heat embossing was still hot, I pressed a rubber stamp into it - love how it turned out.
Page three - I'm so sick of hearing this right now when I tell anyone what I'm going through "Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that" Really? Is that just the stock saying? I know it's probably the same thing I would be saying if I were in their shoes too, but honestly, does it really benefit either the recipient or the giver? Anyway, it is what it is, and until it's over, everyone is going to be sorry to hear that. Moving on again, the technique in this one is my hand made flowers. And again having used Gelatoes to colour the background.
