The Personals…

Rosie & Linda have challenged us to use newsprint in our artwork for this week’s Awfully Big Art Adventure. When I went to look for the paper, all I could find were the personal ads and classifieds, so I decided to take that as my theme…

I used a vintage nude from the Ten Two Studios Nudes Faux Postage sheet because she’s adorable and the perfect size for this altered puzzle piece collage!


Yes, I used an inked flower to cover up her modesty and I have the inky fingers to show for it!! This is from a large child’s floor puzzle, so I shall turn it into a fridge magnet. It has been sealed with a good coat of gel medium, so I’m sure it’ll take the heat of the kitchen!

This was a lot of fun ladies, thank you… I still have another 3 puzzle pieces in various stages of drying/collage and one that’s a pin. Till the next challenge. 😉
