Love yourself


I was inspired by Bjay's "Love yourself" layout in commemoration of breast cancer awareness this October. I used her title but with a photo of myself, i think that we as women of the new decade should be aware of how and what breast cancer is and how early detection can make a difference for us.

i incorporated some patterns of the haliotis specie (abalone) as part of my doodling. well, nothing significant about it. i just want to divert and explore possibilities instead of using flowers. the eyes-like design on the middle part if you look closely, would suggest awareness ( i had written the word aware all over those eyes-like patterns).

the symbol of the breast awareness ribbon takes a strong place here. it symbolizes what my layout is all about.


breast cancer can affect doesn't choose... it doesn't care
let the world be aware that this condition seeks those who doesn't care...

Materials used:

dcwv cardstocks
lyra watercolor pencils
crayola and whispers markers
zig sketch black pen

Techniques used:
