Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue Sew Closed my Soul by DestinyBlue

...So I can't be hurt again.

She gave her heart to someone and they gave it back to her. She's trying to repair the damage, and wants to hide her soul away so no one else will be able to hurt her again.

Second in the seires of drawing of Paige Open my Heart to You by DestinyBlue

While creating this, I was also musing on how it mirrored my artistic situation. I put my heart into my drawings and then offer them on the internet for all to scrutinise, it can be really daunting thing. A lot of the stuff I draw is personal and is never seen by anyone else, so I appreciate the overwhelming support I get when I share with you guys. Sometimes you just want to hide away. This piece isn't born of current guy troubles for me (I have a wonderfuly supportive partner) but from discussions with other people about shared experiences... and bleh, other stuff..

Been enjoying exploring this style more, I know it's another portrait, but I wanted to keep it intimate, like the viewer is close with her and feeling what shes feeling.

Peace, love and picking out stitches,
~Blue x

You are the world's best artist in my opinion, and I'm serious here. The colors and shading makes me feel like I am in the image. I can feel its emotions! Every of your work deserves to be famous all over the internet.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!

Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up aSPECIALROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.

Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.

Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or imSORRY

This is so SAD, yet really AWESOME!!
I know sometimes it hurts to face your problems(and yeah, I know when I just want to run away from them) ...
But hiding away and keeping it to yourself don't makes the situation better(believe me, I know).
Hey, since you are really, really talented, I bet you have your friends and BFFs! (Plus, you are also really kind and thoughtful - )
Talk about your hurting problems that you think you can't handle by yourself - there's something that you can only tell to your bestie;
I think you know about it! (BTW, Do you know about Dork Diaries? The series are so great - and it helps your school life and friendship)
Yeah, I know - it isn't all sunshine and rainbows, but if you get stuck on a really hard and hurting sensitive problem,...
Be sure to not try to take it in by yourself! (Remember, you are NOT alone, girlfriend!!)
(Sorry to make this too, um, drama-like... but I hope this comment will be helpful!) 0v0 !!! / P.S. ... Me: " I JUST WANNA HELP YOU! "

Hiding her soul and heart away so no one will hurt it again?
It will only grow drier and drier, until it is parched. :-(

It's easier said than done, but you have to come back out again.
There's so much more to life than secluding your feelings away.
ilovenikkimaxwell Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2015  Student Traditional Artist
You are SO right - I think I agree with you ---.
ColonelBSacquet Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2015
Thanks. :-)
Although, at times, it feels like it's easier to bunkerize oneself rather than love again.

She loved me...
She gave me everything...
We were together for 2 months...
She was my first kiss...
Then she went straight...

I'll never find love like that again...
I miss her... ;n;

This drawing is too perfect to describe how i feel now :(

So afraid to fall in love again....

Looks like it's very painful for her.
Beautifully done though, of course! :-)

Her drawings are not sad .It tells a story !!!!! there emotion. has room to say is " sad " should already start with the question what message she wants us to convey?
