I have had this prop (that I found on a sidewalk) and dress (bought specifically to use with this prop) for at least 6 years. I knew exactly the image I wanted to create. I even had the title ready. But I did not connect to the story and so it remained dormant and uncreated. Now I connect to this story and so it was finally time to create this image...
"Part of me wants to shine... But every instinct in me screams to close the walls around me. I will not survive again."
I have not shared a "before & after" in quite some time. I hope to get back into the habit again. If you have any questions (about my process, the editing, or anything really...), then please send me a message and I will be happy to help.
