I chose to make an entire altered puzzle for my partner for the 100 facts about me swap. There are 27 outside pieces, I chose to paint altering colors using blue grey/white/black.  To set the center off I chose blue grey only and shaded each piece with black. I chose to dedicate each piece with something unique about my partner.  The center was made from photos that she sent.  I also suggested that she could remove the center and replace it with a mirror for 2  unique wall hangings.  This was inspired after doing my first altered puzzle swap. I am hooked.

This is so sweet and thoughtful and I love the idea of using it as a frame.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

 Each peice is so unique! It looks like a lot of time and work went into it! I like the idea of turning it into a mirror too! Beautiful!
