Kraft plus June challenge
This month at Kraft plus, the challenge is to use puzzles.
I had every intention of finding an old puzzle at an op shop, but time has been against me lately, and I am not finding time to do things like that. So I have used a Sizzix die that cuts out puzzle pieces.
I scrapped this photo of my Dad, who loves a puzzle. He has a stash of old puzzles from his childhood, and I don't know a puzzle yet that he hasn't figured out - good for the old brain - lol. We are on the hunt for a puzzle that will trip him up.
For my layout, I traced around some puzzle pieces with a pen directly onto the Kraft cardstock. I then layered puzzle pieces cut with the die around the layout. I included a couple of question marks as a bit of extra interest.
In my embellishing, I have created 2 clusters, using paper wire, which I have made a small tangle with. The cogs from Birdie's embellies represent the mind ticking over. I have some flairs from Funky Flairs Studio, and an arrow from Charms Creations.
This was actually quite a tricky layout to complete, but I think it looks ok, and I think my Dad will like it.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
