Altered Puzzle Pieces

It's the Ist of the month, so another challenge is starting over at
Rhedd's Creative Spirit.
The design team have created some stunning projects,so I really hope you will pop along and join in with the challenge.
Always Altered Art, Recyled Projects. Mixed Media...anything made of wood, or wood substrate or grey-board...definitely no paper-crafted items.

For my project this month I altered several puzzle pieces, one of which I will be showing in another blog post.
These pieces are large, brightly coloured and were laminated,so I had to sand that back.
I painted the pieces 3 times with gesso.

I inked up the pieces with a selection of colours and then stamped over the whole puzzle piece and left it to one side, while I worked on the next piece.

Using the same inks I coloured the second piece and then used another nautical stamp..this one worked well as I managed to keep the girl image complete.

To finish the pieces I sprayed them with a gloss sealer...added some chains, beads etc from my stash..
If you would like to join in with the challenge you can find it here at

A very original idea. I love the blending colours and the stamping. That could be earrings!
