I have puzzles on the brain! After I made some whimsical puzzle necklaces I decided to play with the extra pieces to see what happened.
The necklaces were fun to make plus I discovered it is pretty easy to work with the puzzle pieces…they don’t fall apart easily so you can “tear” the puzzle apart without having to put pieces back together.
The border is so pretty on this puzzle so I broke off a few chunks and scanned them into my computer.
After I scanned this into my computer I made a manipulated a mirror image into a greeting card size and had so much fun playing with “frame masks” for an artsy design. My photo software is Fastone Image Viewer and I have 40 frame masks that change the edge of the scanned images.
This was the final image before using the frame mask in my photo software.
Isn’t that artsy? I filled in the center with a phrase that is becoming my favorite: “Life is a puzzle and we are the pieces.”
