Altered Puzzle Week 5

Welcome back to the blog, it's Memorial Day today so Happy Memorial Day everyone!! 
We are onto week 5 of the Altered Puzzle Challenge and starting row #2 

Here are the links to the previous posts for this challenge

Our Facebook group is here:

This week we are starting on the second row to our puzzle, pieces 7 and 8.. I decided to go with something simple for these two pieces since it's a holiday week

starting with piece #7 I began by using Dylusions Sprays and 
a water spitzer, first spray the puzzle piece with water and then spritz with Dylusions, I just kind of let the colors run

Once everything is dry I used a piece of punchinella (you can also use any stencil) and my black Zig marker to create circles here and there

I then used my white gelli pen to doodle a bit

I used a piece of gelli print leftover paper to cut out some triangles for the edges 

I then used my Zig marker again to doodle
(if you haven't noticed I love to doodle) 

Lastly I printed out my sentiment, cut out, edged and glued
This is my final piece

For my next piece I began by using Archival Ink in a brown color and a stencil 

I also edged the puzzle piece with the same ink

I added some black wash tape here and there

I then used some of Tim Holtz Chitchat stickers for my sentiment
I also used Tim Holtz framework die to create the little chevron across the front

I used my white gel pen to outline my "ok" word which was created using black card stock and a Tim Holtz die

Here is my finished piece

Here are my two pieces together

These were fast and simple but the outcome is no less exciting. I hope you have fun creating your pieces for this week and enjoy your Memorial Day!! See you next week


  1. What fun! Off to see what happens when I pull out my pieces and some ink!

  2. It is always so exciting to see what you come up with. You always create awesome pieces of art. This week as well...waw.... Love the idea of using the punchinella with the black pen to draw some cirles. Simple... But very impressive. It makes a great impact. And your colors.... Oh my .... Awesome.
    Thank you for sharing.
