FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Altered jigsaw piece

This large jigsaw piece was recycled from one of DG's jigsawsfrom his toddler days... see told you I was hoarding...lol I'm on a roll right now and have lots more to share with you over the coming weeks and I promise it won't ALL be altered stuff. These girlie's are looking very laid back to me... wouldn't it be fun if WE could find a toadstool big enough to sit on.... errrrmmm ok maybe not, specially if you're holding a glass of wine at the time :)
I covered the jigsaw piece and made the toadstool with some beautiful Papermania papers from the Vintage collection.
I also added some sparkle with my gold leaf pen rather than bling, though unfortunately the photos don't do it justice I'm afraid

Thanks for looking... hope to see you again soon :)
hugs
Chris

You have inspired me to pull out those large puzzle pieces I purchased from a re-store..haven't created one in a while so don't be surprised if you see one on my blog within the next while...I just love what you have created here, and the puzzle piece makes such a wonderful canvas for your art...Excellent piece! Hugs, Gayle.
