Upcycled Spring puzzle

With spring knocking at the door, it's time to think beautiful colors: yellows, pinks, greens. And since you've been cooped up indoors for the frigid winter, you might just have some puzzles lying around that you were doing to pass the time. Well, grab some pieces & your CCB supplies to create a colorful free-form home decor piece - and you don't have to be an artist!

I used part of a puzzle to make it look artsy - I like the open pieces!  After brushing matte gel on the reverse, I painted the front with white gesso. Then I used Tattered Angels paints to free-style a watercolor scene.  Desert SunParadise Pink, & Sweet Pea Pod Glimmer Glazes combined with Wedding PinkWoven Burlap, & Coffee Shop Glimmer Mists make for a shimmery spring scene!

A sentiment from 7 Gypsies Poses and Reflections paper layered on Light Pink burlap adds a little whimsy.

Welcome spring yourself with your own puzzle creation! Super simple to create with the help of CCB products!
