Feeling Puzzled

In a recent issue of The Stamper's Samper magazine, Carol Quance had several pieces of art made from giant puzzle pieces. These looked so fun to make, so the next time I was in a store with puzzles I looked to see if they had these giant ones, but they didn't. I thought I would probably have a very hard time finding them. A few days later I went to the DI, a local thrift store, and looked through the toys and puzzles and found a box of 48 of them! I was ecstatic! These are about 5" tall. I followed her basic directions of lightly sanding the puzzle piece, covering with gesso, painting with acrylic paints, and using stamps and clip art images, and embossing. They were so fun to do. I have other themes already in my head for more. So many fun ideas, so little time!
