Wow Wednesday already, can’t believe how fast this week is passing, but I had two days off work and managed to get loads done, even a bit of decorating.
This spread is from my A4 journal and it was done as ‘art therapy’ a few months ago. I was angry and upset and rather than dwell on it I put it down on these pages.
I won’t go into the details because honestly it’s not worth it. It’s about someone who used to be a friend but isn’t anymore. The quote by Maya Angelou, is so appropriate because if I think back, even when we were friends she showed me her true colours several times, but because we were friends I made allowances. I should have believed her the first time she showed me the nasty side of her personality and ended the friendship then. It’s been a valuable lesson to learn.
The page was created after a particularly unpleasent event a couple of years after the friendship ended. She made accusations about me doing something I hadn’t done to several other people. It felt like I was being provoked to respond in an angry way and defend myself, but I decided to ignore her and work through my frustrations by making art. I wrote down exactly what I was thinking and then covered it up with art. It worked 🙂
I didn’t like the spread at first, but now it’s growing on me.
I thoroughly recommend this – Don’t get angry, get arty!
I hope you are all having a good week.
