Description:
I used 100% Rachel Jefferies products.

Negative Thoughts: Brush 03, Brushes and Stuff 01, Brush01, frame, paper piece, tread, stamp and paper 04.
This page is complicated. It's a photo of my brother from when he was maybe 10, he had braces. He looks cross eyed but thankfully, he isn't. This page represents our relationship or lack thereof. He only texts when he wants something. Growing up, he was my parent's favorite child. Of two. Now, he and my mother aren't speaking. I intentionally made the page a tad dark and strange.

      I love the cloud above his head. The dark colors and target circles behind express the strained relationship and are powerful. Glad you were able to get some of these feelings out.

      Thanks for playing along with Rachel Jefferies mixed media challenge!

      @MrsPeel Thank you so much, Family drama. I let it out in my page. I promised my mom to bring home all of her old photos and scan them. Oh boy.

      my dear .... what family doesn't have drama? I'm still to find one!!!! Love that you turned it into a marvellous piece..... !!!!!!!!!! I think you would be a fantastic graphic artist, this could be a record cover album, or a poster for a gig/concert, it is amazing just visually, then when we read your feelings....fabulous..... and original, as you always do!!!! I love that you always come up with takes on feelings that become master pieces!!!!!!!!!!!

      i love the B&W photo effect blended with the text, the combo of circles and triangles with the wavy border and all the yellow splatter that makes this pop!

      Congrats on your Froggy Fave and Pride of the Pad. Awesome page with all of your painterly goodness. And regardless of your current relationship with your brother, he did make for a great subject here.
