Artful Times Challenge 51-Game Pieces

Hello Everyone who pops into Jumbled Crafts today and thank you for all the wonderful comments I get each week. A warm welcome to my latest followers as well.

At Artful Times this time, we have the theme Game Pieces which was chosen by Neet. Lots of things you could use I'm sure and I can't wait to see all of your wonderful ideas. If you join in with us, you may win a prize from Oyster Stamps when the winner and runner-up are chosen for this and the last challenge.

I made this picture from a children's jigsaw. I did take pictures along the way so you could see how I made it.
This was the jigsaw and I took out the middle 6 pieces

I separated the pieces and worked on the plain side of them

Each piece was painted a different colours, then when dry fastened back together and decorated with bits and bobs

All I had to do then was mount it onto a backing piece and I edged the card with some nice, strong ribbon. It could go into a frame at some point when I find one it fits.

Hope you will visit Von and Neet to see what they have made for this challenge

Also a warm welcome to Wendy who has joined our Design Team-do pop to see what she made and make her feel at home.

Love Chrissie x
