<p>this was a really easy page to do (strangely) but really hard to &quot;get&quot; to doing, if that makes any sense.&nbsp; sometimes it is so much easier to ignore those elephants in the room, know what i mean?</p>
<p>anyway,&nbsp; this page was very backwards for me.&nbsp; i usually start with a photo and an emotion/feeling, and go from there.&nbsp; but this time, i began with the journaling.&nbsp; the words led to the idea of the DNA model out of a paper piecing, and resulted in a no-photo layout.&nbsp; (i love making no-photo pages, but they are rare for me to commit to.)</p>
<p>i used circle punches in various sizes to accomplish the paper piecing, and just assembled them according to their color, layering some throughout the model with foam adhesive.</p>
<p>the stamp is from Purple Onion Designs, and the papers are mainly from the BasicGrey Boxer collection.</p>
<p>all of the journaling is written directly onto the layout in India Ink with an old-fashioned fountain pen with a thin nib.</p>
<p><b><u>Journaling:</u></b></p>
<p>&nbsp;this year, my parents divorced.</p>
<p>within the vortex of that failure, i felt the marrow vacummed from my core.&nbsp; i felt my body dissever, as if my very DNA molecules diided down the double helix and set themselves at war.</p>
<p>i felt my heart break.</p>
<p>strangely, i grew to not recognize myself in the mirror.&nbsp; i looked at her warily, suspecting some kind of trickery or guile in the figure reflected back at me.&nbsp; i feigned indifference most days, and ignored the aberration.</p>
<p>but.</p>
<p>in some dizzying, fragmented moments, i swear i saw a stranger standing there.</p>
<p>it is some savage humor that i am now disposed to puzzle out the mutation.</p>
<p>'no man is an island.'</p>
<p>&nbsp;&quot;no common failure, whether it be sickness, or bankruptcy, or professional misfortune, will reverberate so cruelly and deeply in the unconscious as a divorce.&nbsp; it penetrates the seat of all anguish, forcing it to life.&nbsp; with one cut, it slices more deeply than life can ever reach.&quot;&nbsp; -botho strauss</p>
