Altered Puzzle Pieces

I've been a member of "PaperArtistOnline" (PAO) for many years.  A friend of mine had an Altered Puzzle Piece swap and convinced me to get included - I finally finished up my puzzle pieces yesterday and am getting them ready to put in the mail to her.  We do 3 pieces and send her 2 and she'll swap out and send me 2 of someone else's - I plan to use them as wall deco in my house as I do some remodeling.

Each piece is approx 8" x 8" - I originally intended to use some old denim but didn't get it worked out so I remembered I have several books from the "Big Band" era  - combo books for Piano, Clarinet and Sax from when my father use to play in dance bands.  They paired up with some fun stamps from the All That Jazz collection from Club Scrap.  Added some homemade flowers, ribbons and stick on beads

Thanks for stopping by - and if you decide to look into a fun group to share your paper crafting projects with check out Paper Artist Online.

Hope to see you all again soon

Welcome back! That sure sounds like a fun and exciting time you had! I pulled out my puzzle die the other day and then did not use it! These pieces are so clever and unique! Love how you altered the pieces!
