Hence, the reason behind this page...I had my dd1 take this photo of me, in July 2012, on top of a large cage, for the cold hardness of being trapped. I darkened the photo and used some flames coming out of me to represent the burning pain. I used a functioning zipper to hide the title and journaling since I have been in hiding and am now coming out with my disease. Of course the severe distressing and punched cracks are for the all anguish and suffering I have been going through.
I did this page, not for sympathy, but just for my own therapy as well as wanting to share what is going on with my friends. I greatly appreciate all of you who have inquired about my pages over these past months.
Journal: "Hidden Deep within my own shadows...there is no escape from all my pain." The paper which holds the zipper was only one sided, so I had to glue a different piece behind it. I added the fibers to cover the part that was still exposed at the top.
The red net was from a popsicle bag. I glued it down in certain areas using mod podge. Instead of using one punch around the page I used two. I even used some of the cracks that were punched out here and there.
(Not pictured here) is the black circle next to my photo and that is a CD protector that I nabbed from my dh.
