Challenge 51 at Artful Times

Hello and welcome to our challenge at Artful Times "Games pieces" and please give a warm welcome to our new member Wendy

There are so many different sorts of games piece you could use to create with, with puzzle pieces and dominoes being the most popular, I have gone for the smaller size puzzle pieces with lots of ideas all getting muddled in my head consequently I don't think I have done this challenge justice. My first idea was to make a frame for a picture, the aperture cut in mount board  was then framed with the puzzle piece and built up in layer to give it depth it does look better IRL and when I find the photo of my son proudly showing off the puzzle he'd completed I will use it in a frame

Then with a bit of time between life and work I gave it another go, using the puzzle again to make a frame but this time with out the aperture and adding texture paste to the puzzle pieces

There are still half baked ideas in my in my head one of which is to do a Finnabair style canvas with alsorts of games piece as both my sons loved and still do like playing games, who know I might get round to it or you might like to give it ago .

Don't forget to check out what Neet.  Chrissie and Wendy have made, we'd love to see what you have made and if your looking for some super buys then visit Oyster Stamps

Brenda Brown said...

Jigsaw pieces as a frame - well that's just inspired thinking. Love your clever piece Von. Have a great weekend xx

The frame works well and it's a lovely image. Not sure what I can come up for this chalenge, I am rather stumped at the moment!

Fantastic idea Von and I am wishing I hadn't recycled all our old jigsaws with pieces missing. Love what you did on both of these.

Now you have me thinking about the picture frame from jigsaw pieces. What a good idea - might I copy it please?
(Not sure I understand what Craft Stamper is doing?)

Now that is a very clever idea Von. I can see how you could incorporate the puzzle pieces into a Finnabair style frame too. Jenny x
