I wanted to dedicate a wall in my living room to a vintage circus theme.  It took me a few weeks, but I am finally finished.  These are my first altered puzzle pieces, they are made on 6"X8" pieces.






















Here is the wall.

I saw some familiar things in your altered puzzles- so cool!  Smiley I really like the way you took the vintage looking and mixed it with the modern to get something so completely "right".  I don't think I could ever do that. Smiley

Thanks!  I found them at a flea market, they are a child's floor puzzle.
