Lately I have been stifling my voice. Kind of just going about things and glossing over the issues. I am afraid if I voice my feelings others will be hurt. I am trying not to be selfish, but in doing so am I really doing the relationships with these people any good? I decided to get some of these feelings out in my art journal while I struggle with what to do.

I started with a black gesso background. I added some embossing powder through a border stencil. I used a few black and white pictures of my mouth (resembling my voice).

I then added my stamped my staying and went around the letters with a glitter pen.

Next I added some white paste and glitter through a stencil. The glitter is to resemble the glossing over of my feelings, making everything look sparkly and fine.

I am going to submit this to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge use Glitter. I am not sure this is what they had in mind for the challenge, but I do think it qualifies. I promise the next post will be more upbeat and not so deep. I do thank you for stopping by.
