Three Altered Jigsaw Pieces

I made these a little while ago when I had a “thing” about jigsaw pieces, mermaids, and dragonflies, after finding some wonderful US altered art blogs.Cards Oct 011

The face is made using a filmo mould, and then sprayed with gold paint when “cooked”.  The leaves and dragonflies are made using punches, with tiny pearls and clear gems scattered liberally over them.

The gold seashells came from a charm site on US E-bay.
The mermaid pieces were covered with glossy accents to give a bit of depth and shine, a bit like looking into the sea!
