Altered Puzzle Pieces

I had a great evening yesterday, I altered two puzzle pieces, first time ever, they are roughly 3" in size and are from a puzzle that my grandchilden had when they were younger, not the wooden ones just modern day cardboard.

I took the printed paper off of these and painted a base of browns which I have left showing in places, then layered printed and stamped papers for the background, the mother and child are both stamped images, to the left of the girl is black mesh and to the right of the mother is a piece of lint bandage which I coloured with ink pads, both have metal words and some inking over the background and sides, the links, chain and wire are from a really grotesque mobile phone dangle, it came in handy after all !

I am making a paper bag book and these two pieces will be linked together by the chain on one of the pages, the book is taking forever to make as I only work on it when Treez, a friend of mine comes over, as we both go away a lot sometimes 3-4 weeks pass before anything gets done to it !

Anyway I hope that you like my 1st attempt at altering puzzle pieces!
