Altered Puzzle Book

Have you ever made something that you are so proud of you just keep looking at it and looking at it and sharing in with as many people who will stand to listen to you?  Not everyone I know shares my love of altering puzzle pieces. Sadly I don't think many of my friends even understand the whole concept of being an altered and mixed media artist. 

That does not deter me though.  I am on a mission to be the artist of my dreams.  The cool thing about being a mixed media artist is that you can use soooo many things that you see in every day life around you.  I am drawn to vintage things.  Lace, trim, buttons, tea stained linens and tags, old postcards and photos. 

I searched my stash and came up with something that I just have to share with you.  It is a altered puzzle book.  I came across the idea a while ago and just got to finishing this piece about a day or two back.  You will see all the elements that I love to work with.  Enjoy this as much as I have sharing it with you!

Here is where I get all my inspiration
