Not Broken...


THE SONG: Not Broken by the Goo Goo Dolls

Written Lyrics HERE


I really enjoyed working on these pages, but I'm not going to lie - it wasn't easy. Once again, I found myself struggling with the writing. It's like I was afraid to write what I really felt - but I had to get it out. So, I did. Then I gesso'd right over it. =) The technique to use was one of my favorites. I love doing sillouettes and masks. I also did a mask with sequin waste.

The Ace of Hearts represents LOVE that can be broken, but will not remain broken.

I am whole and I will be present on this journey of mine called life!

I am most thankful for verses like Psalm 51:10 that say, "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me."

God's mercies are everlasting. He never gives up on us. Isn't that good to know that someone is really on your side? I don't have to trust in others or even myself, because we let each other down and we even let ourselves down. However, 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

Be encouraged my friend. You can be whole in every way!

  1. Such a beautiful and strong page, with a great message! I too cover journaling by using gesso sometimes. It's a good thing to pour all your feelings on the page, and then cover it so YOU know it's there but nobody else can read it. I love the colours you used, and the silhouette is just gorgeous!

  2. Loved your pages Sherry and how you journaled around the sillouettes!!

  3. I really like your spread and I totally get the whole hidden journalling thing. I love the "Year in the life", because you don't even have to write. And I think maybe I'll have to try using silhouettes (when time allows), because I like yours so much!

  4. Your silhouettes are amazing! LOVE your page; so glad you joined us at A Year in the Life!! :)
