Altered PUZZLE Piece Tutorial
I'm real excited to share this tutorial with you!
Altered Art is something that I've been in awe of for a few years.
I admire the abandon at which the artists mix all sorts of elements to create unique items.
I'm happy with the results of this endeavor and hope to gain more confidence as I explore this venue.
Embellish as desired.
Perhaps you have more magazine clippings you'd like to add. Simply apply another even application of Mod Podge for each new layer you add. Allow the adhesive to dry before adding more layers.
TIP: Layout your desired arrangement before gluing into place to make sure you have room for everything.
Cover the back
Let's tidy up the look of the back of the piece before we add the magnet.
Using your puzzle piece as a template, trace shape on a piece of cardstock paper. You don't want any excess showing from the front view, so trim as needed.
Paint a layer of Mod Podge on the back then apply the paper.
Apply another application of Mod Podge on top of the paper you've just added. This will 'seal' the paper.
When the back is dry, sign your art piece with a stamp or your unique signature.
NOTE: I drilled a small hole, threaded the ribbon and tied it in a knot.
