In Pieces

Good morning Junkies!  Marilyn here and I have something a little different for you today.  Jigsaw pieces!  Yep, I purchased one of the large 24 count children's jigsaw puzzles and have set out to alter them into mini works of art.

I decided to work left to right, top to bottom.  For my first piece, I first gessoed the pieces and then sprayed with Art Anthology Grass Colorations.  Using some Art Anthology Stucco and the Pipe Dream stencil I stenciled on my background.  Then using a sponge, I rubbed Art Anthology Tango Velvet over the entire piece.  Lastly, I rubbed Art Anthology Tuxedo Velvet around the edges and added my sentiment, Winds of Change SD621.

For the second piece, I gessoed then sprayed with Waimea Bay Colorations.  Next I stenciled on a random design using the Meridian stencil and Stucco by Art Anthology.  Following that, I rubbed Tango Velvet over the entire piece with a sponge.  Then I stamped The Rules SD618 (fast becoming a favorite), trimming it so it would fit.  Finally I next rubbed Art Anthology Wineberry Velvet around the edges and added my trimmed stamp.

See how well they fit together?  Well 2 down, 22 more pieces to go!

Don't forget, all June Releases are 15% off until the end of this week.  Visit Technique Junkies to pick some up.

Until later.................

Funny, I just bought a children's puzzle to alter as well. Maybe I should get started. You are an inspiration and I love how you used those stamps on the puzzle pieces.
