For the darker side of Disney swap I was partnered with tattooedcrafter. Life interfered, as it is wont to do. At the last minute, just before I was slated to send, I decided to make a rash decision and change my medium. Originally I was going to paint it. In the end, I'm so happy I decided to switch and stitch it instead.

When searching Pinterest and Google for quotes and images of Ursula, I found the "quote" of "A woman does not realize how powerful her voice is until it has been taken from her." I knew it wasn't an actual quote from the movie, but I felt that it was impactful and timely. Perfect! I was going to use an outline image of Ursula, along with the quote. Later I decided on the shell. Perfect representation of the voice.

The banner has a pocket on the back for hanging. This was my first time doing: color blending, highlighting text and doing tassels.

When I started, I thought the main purple I was using had enough contrast to not need anything else. Sadly, when I was done I realized that was not the case. I used a simple highlight using two colors lighter than the main color. I think it turned out fab!

This meant a lot to me. Lately I have felt that my voice at work has been silenced...and I do work with sexual assault survivors that often felt unheard.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
