This week our challenge comes from Eve, who has us examining Bella in New Moon:
The "void" that Bella experienced when Edward left.
You remember in the books how months passed by?
The broken heart we have all had at one time in our lives.....
Yep, we’ve probably all been there. It’s a brutal rite of passage in a girl’s life – the first shattered heart. The one that makes your world feel like it was never really yours, and you now have nothing keeping you from floating away into the abyss. Bella got that lesson big-time in New Moon. Days running together into months, with her tenuous grip on her emotions challenged by the smallest things. This might be my favorite time in the whole saga. (And where I completely give myself over to Team Jake!)
For my project, I decided to go with the dark and dreary emotions Bella was saddled with. She felt no light, save for her time with Jake, and the world looked bleak and colorless to her. This is what I came up with:
I used PearlEx, glue and my heat tool to create the background and stamped ‘the void’ onto a clear Tim Holtz charm. I think this gives off the bleakness that Bella felt all those months she spent mourning her loss.
