An Empty Cage……if you kill the bird.Posted: November 26, 2013
The new challenge is up at Scrapki Wyzwaniowo, with the theme “torn holes in a background.” I went into creating my layout for this challenge, with a depressed and introspective mood, and the only thing that cured it was a little art therapy.
My title “You’re just an empty cage girl, if you kill the bird” is taken from Tori Amos’ song, “Crucify.” I was having a day of dark places, and wondering why I always try to extinguish what’s good inside of me, with feelings of self doubt, or feel the pain of rejection so sharply. I needed to remind myself that the bird inside of me, the one that drives my creativity, the one that sings beautiful melodies of art and music to my soul….well that bird can be silenced with my constant anxiety. I don’t want to leave myself an empty cage. I have so much I want to offer those I love.
The papers for this layout are 7 Dots Studio, from 9th Wave collection, and Domestic Goddess. The texture already in place on the papers, made quick work of creating my torn layout. Torn inside, represented by the torn layers.
Join us for the challenge, which runs through December 4th….and you can possibly win some 7 Dots goodies.
