Wise Words, Mixed Media Jigsaw Puzzle by Deb Stephens
Hello Dusty Fans and welcome to my take on the September Mood Board Challenge! This project is a simple mixed media Jigsaw puzzle! The size is great and not overwhelming if you want to start with something small.
I used DA2363 Jigsaw Pieces Medium, and cut a base to match using extra Dusty Attic chipboard sheets I had. (to prevent frustration later I numbered the backs of each Jigsaw piece in order) I then only snipped the small tags holding the puzzle pieces to their frame and separated it from the pieces.I used two coats of white spray paint primer as I knew I could get good coverage without clogging up all the spaces between the pieces.
Once dry, I placed the pieces back into the frame. Using the mood board colours as inspiration I had some fun with my Ranger alcohol inks, blending solution and an air puffer to move the inks around! I used some Rose Gold foil over the leftover sticky residue and it made the background pop!

DA1641 Wise words Stencil #8, and then removing to apply blue embossing powder, I got my affirmation message onto my puzzle and heat set it. Once set, I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the brush stroke font.
After this, I removed all the tags to separate the Jigsaw pieces and adhered the frame to the base. I also used a fine line black pen to trace the outlines of the pieces onto the white base. To finish, I applied a thin coat of spray varnish over everything to seal it. Hoping this inspires you to create and have fun!
