TTIC#26 ~ the Void

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.....
Yeah that.

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:P1020584

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.

This is GREAT -- you definitely nailed those emotions with this! Such a great interpretation of this theme.

Rebecca said...

So cool! Love that texture you created, wonderful card!

Dani said...

Wow! You really feel 'The Void" with this card! Great textures and lack of colors is perfect!

This image was in my mind- black hole type thing for the longest time about this challenge. Then when I knew I was going to put my poems "out there" I went with a brighter project. I did not want people leaving my blog wanting to go hurt themselves!
This is perfect- you really did it this time!
I LOVE everything about it- and you did it just like I envisioned it in my minds eye!

I want to know what stamp you used to make "the void" where did you get that? Excellent interpretation! Beautiful job.

Margie said...

OME! This is wonderful! That is exactly how I was picturing what I wanted to create, but couldn't excute it... you did it!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
I need another tissue ;)

That is really pretty, even though I know it represents something terrible. I think it is neat that you can make those necklaces. Man, I need to look into all this stuff that you ladies can do.
