Pickle Post #20 - He-Art Journal Week 5

Hi there!

I just realized I didn't post my last TGF He-art Journal pages! Sheesh I am always playing catch up! :)
I was playing around with larger font on my last post...I am not sure if I liked it so I am back to the smaller font. Who knows - it may be back LOL! Anyway, back to the journal...!

The theme for last week's assignment was "Pieces of Me". Paper piecing and layering were encouraged. So I took the 'pieces' part and ran with it. :) Here is what I created.

Week 5: Pieces of Me

I paper pieced a zillion small pieces of patterned paper :), adhered them to white cardstock and die cut the puzzle pieces. I laid them out, connected some and others I left apart. It represents my life, my goals, my blessings and family - some are close and connected, some aren't too far away, some aren't connected at all. Physical and emotional distance, relationships, personal goals...all open to your own interpretation! The black text paper background has all kinds of text about life, creativity, friends, love. The main sentiment reads "Pieces of me color my world".

Here are some close up pics that show paper details and the sentiment from a different angle.

Stuff I Used:
Lotsa Paper - Basic Grey Offbeat, Marjolaine, Out of Print/My Minds Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky, Life of the Party/Echo Park Walk in the Park, Springtime, Summer Days/SEI With All My Heart, Corrine/7 Gypsies Classic Paper/Pink Paislee Sweetness/Sassafras Happy Jack/Stampin' Up White CS
Sentiment - Bliss White Thickers, Me & My Big Ideas 'Fresh Botanicals Colorful Life'
Other Stuff - Cuttlebug 'Puzzled' Die

Working on my assignment for this week TODAY. I am praying for extra energy and massive mojo! :)
I am so happy you took the time to stop by today!
