Giant Puzzle Pieces



I was asked by a friend if I would help out in a swap that hadn't quite gone to plan where one of the participants had missed out on getting her puzzle back. My friend very kindly organized for 3 of us to do 2 pieces each - there were a total of 6 pieces in the puzzle. I was only too happy to help out.......... I hadn't been in the original swap, but after completing these 2 pieces I wish that I had joined it..............oh well!

For the 1st piece I've used Basic Grey paper and sanded around the edges to show a little white.
All of the stamps I've used are by The Darkroom Door, the blue foam flower is from a KMart pack, the gold butterfly is a bead, which I've threaded with some fine gold wire to give it some feelers. The large red butterfly, which has a little mirrored butterfly on top, was a flea market find...............it was originally a brooch - I just cut off the pin from the back!

I'll be back later to show you the 2nd puzzle piece!

...it was nice of you to make up the shortfall and what a fabulous result! Love the little trinkets you included Lyn and the Basic Grey paper is a good backdrop to your creativity.
