I won’t treat you like you’re oh so typical

This group are called Pupil, Angel, Pain, I’m Too Old For This Shit, Siren, It Scares Me When You Go Quiet, Virgin: 2, Alice, I’m Being Very Grown-Up, and Miss Artist.

The text in Virgin: 2 (the title of this post) is from Closer by Tegan and Sara. The ‘tears’ in Pupil and I’m Being Very Grown-Up are made out of rhinestones that I glued on individually. A little tip to anyone considering doing that – to allow good time, put aside at least the rest of your natural life. Yeah.

It’s still all about sex, let’s be honest, but it’s becoming more like therapy than anything else. Some of the words are ‘mine’, and some of them are ‘his’. I set out to explore role-play, but now I just want to purge myself of thoughts/memories that I believe will harm me in some way if I leave them to digest, or fester (emotional bulimia is the driving-force behind everything I do, apparently *sigh*). I was worried that if I stopped making them I might fall into a pitiful heap on the floor next to a bottle of vodka, start crying uncontrollably, and maybe never get up. At least… not for a couple of days. Or until I needed to pee. But instead I am sunbathing, smoking in my garden, trying to eat healthily, and making sure I’m never too far away from my acid-free glue stick. I’m also trying to keep up with the whole shaven-legs thingy, just for the sake of my own self-esteem. That’s probably a good idea, no? I would hate to have to do another major-deforestation. That would make me feel less-than-special.

Also, gorgeous Bianca from Lo-Lee-Ta inspired me to set up a page for my artwork, which you can find by clicking the new picture in my sidebar. From now on, whenever I post new collages or drawings, they’ll be added to my artwork page afterwards, so if you want to view a specific piece, or browse, you can just go there rather than look for it in my archive.

  1. Bonjour Holly,
    Tu as un univers bien à toi, protèges-le. Le contrôle de soi n'est pas toujours facile, mais on en sort grandit et construit à chaque étape. Crois en toi

  2. Ahh, love these kinds of collages. So 90s and angsty, the feel of them is so great.

  3. I love the rhinestones for tears. They are tedious though you're right! I like "I'm getting too old for this shit." I feel this way sometimes in social situations where you can feel pressured to act a certain way. Im just not up to it anymore! :P

    I'm glad you set up a page for your scrapbook!! When they are all together is really cool.

  18. These collages are amazing - I'm transfixed by them. I understand they're a personal expression, but you should seriously consider developing them beyond collages into areas such as t-shirt design. These pages would look so good on fabric, perhaps with added 3D embellishment. I'd definitely buy one!
    I am now following you on bloglovin; amazing blog!

  26. I was going to say that emotional bulimia is def healthier than physical bulimia, but sometimes I'm unsure.

    I love Tegan and Sara.

  37. Your pages are so inspirational - I love the pictures and words you mixed together. I also really enjoy Tegan and Sara. I too am trying to keep up the great task of hairless legs, at least while the sun is shining anyway. Being a woman requires a lot of effort! xx
