Jigsaw Puzzle Piece Swap - By the Sea


I received a little wooden jigsaw piece in the post for a swap. Sadly it was snapped in half right across the middle.

But I repaired it and decorated it with metallic acrylic paints, texture paste, embossing powders and tiny little shells I got from dismantling a charity shop necklace.

Here is a close up - with a tiny vintage image of a bathing beauty!

It looks all shimmery in wet with the naked eye but I can't quite capture that in the photos.


The back and sides have been painted metallic blue too - and the back has had waves painted on it.

Oh that's lovely Lottie, I've not done mine yet - now I'll have to have a think ('coz you just reminded me about it!).
