all by myself

december was a hard month, w/ the back injury and loss of the holiday activities w/ my family. i was pretty much just left alone, lying on my stomach while other people went on w/ their lives, and i wanted certain people to just leave me/us alone totally, saving us the trouble of dealing w/ their drama and idiocy.

this comp book page has an acrylic painted background with a couple of colors mixed together for variation. the picture was taken from a national geographic and glued on after painting. the writing was done w/ sharpie markers and the final finish on the page was done w/ future floor wax.

if you want to read more of the story, you can find it over here.

This is wonderful. I am also struggling w/ some family member(s) and I draw a line where I say I can't worry about it anymore. But then they hurt me and it still hurts. It's hard to deal with sometimes. I love how you are using art to express these things. This is a beautiful piece. :)

I love what you have done with these pages, Jill. I think that this is what I started out to do with journaling but have never been able to. Congrats on your achievement.
