Puzzle Shaped Home Decor

Hi friends...sharing a mixed media project in the  shape of a Puzzle which I made as a birthday present for my husband who loves gardening, flowers and birds!

I made it with the  new MDF Puzzle from Crealies which is a very large puzzle and has  lots of room to express your creativity!

I painted the  Puzzle with a coat of gesso and decoupaged spring themed elements from a paper napkin onto it

Applied a brick stencil design using crackle texture paste and stamped a chicken wire design in the  gaps of my design

Made flowers to match the  design on the  paper using circles!

Added cute little birds behind the  flowers!

And of course I had to add my favourite sentiment die from Crealies  "Smile" on a banner. I used the  Crealies  sticker sheets to die cut the  smile...the  sticker sheets are so useful to diecut and stick delicate diecuts such as the  text dies.

I added the  new Crealies  gear dies here and there both inside the  design and on the  back of the  puzzle.

Added tiny pearls at various places for a lovely texture

The cheerful bow from Crealies  is never out of place!!

Stringed some tassels on a leafy ribbon to finish of the  Puzzle

The whole piece can hang using a metal and satin handle which is actually a handbag handle!

I hope you liked this project.
