I just finished the coolest swap with one of my groups. It was altered puzzle pieces with a twist and this was alot of fun. My themes were Mardi Gras - Gold and Countries/Travel -Beige tan.
I started by sanding down the puzzle pieces so they would take
paint and glue better
After that I painted them in basic black. I figured this would be the
best base color for both of them.
Lastly I decorated using paper, stamps, embossing and added embelishments.
I had tons of fun with these and I think they came out nice.
I hope my partners like them :-)
Travel - Beige /Tan
