2363 TANGRAM people

Each one of us fulfills a piece of a larger puzzle.

 We have a new theme over at Moo Mania & More:

Cold and Frosty Colours

All those colours we associate with the winter season , blues, purples, silver, white, we are  sure you will come up with lots of ideas to showcase those colours.
My idea here was to combine the cold colours with 
as this is our current theme at 

 I found some TANGRAM people and played with them in
one of my journals. It was fun!

I thought 
"Each one of us fulfills a piece of a larger puzzle."
fits this spread perfectly. 

Elizabeth your blue handmade paper is so beautiful! I am sure I will use it on some more projects soon!


 Much LOVE from Susi


  1. I'd actually never heard of tangram people before, but I love them. Really clever, and a wonderful way to incorporate two challenges into one.

    I wish your paper hadn't gotten messed up in the mail. It was in one piece when I sent it. I like how you are using it in so many different spreads, though. Thanks for sharing it with Art Journal Journey, too, dear co-admin.

  2. Liebe Susi,
    das Bild passt perfekt zum Motto. Sind das Figuren, die mit Hilfe des Siebenbrett Spiels gelegt wurden? Wirklich erstaunlich, wie viele Figuren man alleine mit sieben verschiedenen Formen legen kann.
    Ich wünsche Dir noch eine wunderschöne Restwoche.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  3. Geometrie und Tangram - wieder ein toller Einfall von dir, liebe Susi und ganz famos in Szene gesetzt! Irgendwo habe ich auch noch solch ein Tangram-Spiel im Regal, lang nicht mehr in der Hand gehabt... Wirklich erstaunlich, wie viele Figuren sich doch aus diesen wenigen Elementen legen lassen!
    Na, versinkt ihr auch im Schnee? Liebe schneefreie Grüße - Ulrike

  4. What a fabulous spread Susi - love your tangram 'people', and how you have used them on this spread. The sentiment does fit the page beautifully

  5. I love your fabulous journal spread Susi, my daughter had a magnetic tangram puzzle, I think I played with it more than she did. Happy New Year.

  6. Hi Susi awesome pages my friend ,love the colours ,well done xx

  7. How cool is this! That is an amazing idea. People are coming up with such cool ideas for AJJ this month. I would never have thought of tangrams. And I can't believe it is time for Moo Mania to change already. Holy cow! Hope all is well and you are enjoying the new year. Hugs-Erika

  11. Hello, my beautiful friend, I had never heard of TAMGRAMA and I went to investigate. It is very interesting, it speeds up the mind, the Chinese are very intelligent.
    Your TAMGRAMA is very interesting, I also like that each one of us fulfills an important piece, because if you apply it to life itself, it also has logic! cute your work you are very! very talented. Many love Liyongo I love animals!

    Many kisses friend! 😚😚😚

  20. Eine wundervolle Idee diese Tangram Figuren für das Geometrische-Formen-Thema zu verwenden und mit den frostigen eisblauen Farben zu kombinieren! Eine sehr schöne Doppelseite mit einem super passenden Zitat!

  26. Those Tangram people look such fun Suzi, I have not heard of that term before I take it is a form of paper folding or similar maybe? What a clever way to showcase Alison's Geometric Theme. Your page is as always inspiring as online time is rather limited for me at present, I have much to catch up on.
    Weekend Hugs & I hope all is well with you? xx TRacey x

  27. das ist ja toll!! ich finde tangram sehr faszinierend und bin sehr angetan von deinen seiten - so viele figuren!! ich habe mal lustige versuche für eine drawing challenge gemacht. wenn du lust hast, schau mal hier:
    liebe grüße,

  28. Creative and well done artwork. I like this a lot.

  29. Amazing composition here, keeping your funky geometric people near the "ground" of the page, so that there is plenty of room for thoughts and imagination to fly free above them. I love this page spread.
