Smeared & Smudged Valentine's Day Blog Hop
This is an altered paper mache box that I made to house one of my journals. The "tiles" are made from black polymer clay that I textured using various stamps, and colored with Perfect Pearls. The uncured tiles were then glued onto the box, then baked/cured in the oven. The image of the woman is a digi stamp from Smeared & Smudged from the Femdom collection, called "Spreader Bar". She was colored with Fabrico & Tombow markers and mounted onto a piece of black "corrugate" cardstock. I then took several metallic words by Making Memories and colored them with different colors of Adirondack Alcohol Inks. The word Love was deliberately mangled. This was an extremely personal project for me as I truly identify with the subjugated woman who is not allowed to speak and whose hand are tied behind her back. The journal encompasses my journey as I separate & break the chains that bind - 21 years of marriage to an insecure despot - Time served.
