Therapy....

Lately  have been feeling extremely low. I feel stressed, worried and just am constantly hard on myself. I really am my own worst enemy.
But yesterday I scrapped. I scrapped photos of me ( yes I've scrapped them before but not in this way). I used my page as reminder to myself, or therapy I guess. I used it to get down what I was feeling. I have totally been dwelling on things, overthinking EVERYTHING and getting myself so worked up about things. So this is my page.
I used the prompt on the "Scrap the Girls " challenge for this month to use traditionally masculine colours and embellishmnets  on a feminine page. So here it is.

 Very grungy with some feminine touches. I even pulled out some old metal embellishments that are traditionally great on boy style pages!
The background was actually created a few days ago when Maya was using colour shine to create a book of her own. When she had finished with the masks I then rubbed the excess onto some white cardstock. I LOVED how it turned out!!
It feels good to use up old supplies too.

Thanks for popping by Eb x
