It is so fun to repurpose something and make it your new favorite craft supply! I have seen puzzle art on Pinterest and decided to try it.
I purchased this 24 piece puzzle at Dollar Tree for $1.00 and had so much fun making an experimental piece of art.
I have files full of art images I tear out of magazines. It was easy to trace the shape of the puzzle piece on each colorful image and cut to be the shape of each individual piece. I attached the images with glue stick, slowly covering the original puzzle kitty cat image.
I tried to have an assortment of faces, and recognizable things like birds and trees with various words as well for background interest. I like the idea that you see something different each time you look at the piece.
I attached the puzzle to a 10 x 10 gallery wrapped canvas and applied jewelry findings to decorate the top and bottom edges. Last, I used glue stick to adhere FREE MAGAZINE FONT for my new favorite saying!
