Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #26









"The Void"

I thought about this project for a little while. Spoiler alert!!! We had to create something that represented the "void" that Bella felt after Edward left in New Moon. She lost her love, and there was nothing she could do about it. It was so emotional... Stephanie Meyer merely wrote one month's name on a page to show the passing of time. It made me feel awful! So, allow me to describe my project.
The black Void takes up most of the piece. It has been distressed to show the red hidden underneath. I chose the red because a.) It's the color of love and passion and b.) red is used on all four of the book covers. I sanded the paper in a diagonal direction going from the small corner of Bella to the larger area of Edward to show, sort of the vibration of her emotions going towards him. I scratched the title in to give the feeling of pain. I used a clear heart that I colored with 2 shades of red that I placed on top of Bella's name. Her heart is transparent... everyone knows that she is lost without her Edward... The color is splotchy... she is in pain. Her name is underneath the heart because all that matters to her is her love for Edward, her void has taken over her life... she is hidden underneath it. Edward was also done in clear, but I kept it clear because he wanted it to "be as if he never existed." Of course she remembers him, and hopes that he still exists... but now he is nothing but a memory. I used staples to hold the heart and Edward's name down to show that they are both in pain. He hurts more than she realizes. I also used a sad grey for the background. Both Bella and Edward are "in the light," but it is grey. It's depressed. But it's the same color. They are on the other side of the same void. They just don't know it yet. Edwards section is bigger than Bella's because she's stuck nin Forks/La Push, while he is all over the world (as Bella belives). So, yeah.. I'm in to symbolism.
Here are the materials I used: Coredinations cardstock, Prism cardstock, Heidi Swapp Ghost letters and Heart, Ranger Alcohol Inks, sandpaper, scissors, and some good old fashioned staples.
I wish I knew how to arrange the order of the pictures... I obviously wanted the full layout shot first... but damned if I know how to do that!
Well, I guess that's it. Hope you like my piece and all of it's meanings. I do. ;}
