First project posted!! Also the first altered puzzle I've done! This was all done with acrylic paint and some stickers and sequins. I used a sharpie marker to do some lettering and outlining. I first put the 100 pc puzzle together then wrote numbers on the front of the pieces. Then I turned them over and just ramdomly painted each piece. I chose some random designs and things that were very personla to my family such as schools, favorite foods, beverages, hobbies etc. It sort of turned into a little autobiography of our family life LOL! when it was finished, I turned the pieces back over and put the puzzle back together then flipped it and it was like a little surprise tio myself to see how it turned out!  I pasted onto a thick piece of poster board and clear-coated the top with some sealent! I love how it turned out! Some of the details and glitter didn't show on the scanned image but the colors are pretty close!

Thanks for checking it out!

It turned out amazing!  I have a bunch of puzzle pieces I should use for something.  You've inspired me - let's see what I come up with, now.
But anyway, it is stunning.  Are you going to frame it and hang it on a wall or perhaps mount it under glass for a coffee table?  Lots of possibilities with this.  Fun-fun!

Thanks! Grin Its kinda tough to think of 100 different things for one piece lol! I think I'll just frame it for now.....may do something differeent with it down the road.
