Deze vrouw tovert striae om tot glitterkunst en krijgt nu honderden verzoeken

Die striemen op mijn buik. Ik vervloek ze. Hoe dolgelukkig ik ook ben met het feit dat mijn zwangerschap goed verlopen is, deze erfenis is toch wel beduidend minder leuk (als in echt NIET leuk). Tot ik onlangs op Instagram de kunstwerken van kunstenares Sara Shakeel tegenkwam. Zij zet striae namelijk om tot kunst. Kunst? Ja kunst! Hoe tof. 

Sara gebruikt zwangerschapsstrepen en striemen namelijk als haar nieuwste doek. Met glitters en kristallen op haar huid markeert Sara wat veel mensen (zoals ik dus) zien als een “imperfectie” en tovert het om tot kunst. De boodschap die Sara erbij geeft is dat we onze imperfecties moeten liefhebben.

Je hebt natuurlijk helemaal gelijk Sara! Op Instagram is te lezen dat de kunstenares inmiddels honderden e-mails heeft gehad van vrouwen en zelfs enkele mannen met de vraag of zij hun striae-foto’s ook wil voorzien van glitters. Lekker bezig Sara, time to shine!

You guys have NAILED the #glitterstretchmarks game!I I cannot explain how overwhelmed I was to see around 300 emails of stretchmarks, cellulite, scars and the best part is I am getting requests from men asking if I can put glitter on their marks too! Isn't that just fabulous! … How each and everyone of you wanted me to make you guys a part of my art! Litrelly I had to go through each and every email reply them and let them know how normal and beautiful it is to own one of these stripes! I promised you guys I'll make you a part of my art! I have been super busy with my upcoming exhibition here in my home country! But i had to take a little time out to fullfil my promise! For those who are still waiting , Do look into my stories and you might find your edit! Thank you once again for being with me on this! Relating and creating art together & forever!!!!

I have never felt so powerful & liberated and so fucking proud of mystretch marks in my entire life !!! From where I come from & live , To be on the chubby side or to even talk about stretchmarks is not something one is proud of, i have seen my stretch marks grow from the day i started putting on weight, I'd be honest even before uploading it I was thinking why would anyone be interested in my concept of stretch marks turned into glitter or crystals!!! My god I was so wrong! Amazing people and women are already doing such an amazing job with representing these stripes and cellulite!!! Thank you for a beautiful response everyone!!!! I have been featured on @cosmopolitan & @yahoostylebeauty link is in my story. Support and love yourself for who ever you are! Cause there is someone out there sharing the same feelings as you are! There is one thing for sure YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! 🌹🌹🌹🌸🌼🌻 #glitterstretchmarks #stretchmarks #happy #inlove #loveyourself #theweekoninstagram #instagram #tigerstripes . . This picture is by one of my amazing followers who was brave enough to share this with me!! Thank you love!!!!
