Jigsaw swap


Well I have been pretty quiet for those of you in blog land,I have been busy with life and some swaps I have been in .This is one swap I have just finished a jigsaw swap ran by the very Talented Annie VanLeeuwen from Perth.If your in this swap and dont want to see your piece quick turn away now!!!!
Everyone had a different theme no one choose a colour theme either,I hate to break mine up now when I see them all pieced together!!!!.We had to do two pieces for each person ,the two I get to keep are the very first piece top left and the very bottom right side.

Thanks Annie I loved doing the swap

Hi Jen

Jen, this is striking. I wouldn't want to break it up either! What a neat idea for a swap.

Heather Robinson said...

It must be VERY difficult to separate this....absolutely gorgeous. The colour is stunning and sets off all images and embellishments beautifully. Don't worry about being quiet...we lie in wait!!LOL

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Can't wait to get my pieces..... these are really just so beautiful, I just totally love your style. Can I just ask you how do you stick your background paper onto the piece and then cut neatly around it??? I have trouble with mine....Mind you I'd better get on and finish my pieces.

This looks absolutely wonderful Jen! I'm sure it is even more so IRL!!! Life & Art, they take turns in taking first place in most people's lives, so don't worry Jen....we'll be waiting for you ;-)

How could you break this up Jen, it's beautiful. Maybe you'll have to make another one to keep.

Hi Jen

Your puzzle pieces are fantastic (massive understatement but I run out of appropriate words when I comment on your blog!!) and I have worked out which are mine (just had to look)!! So glad I am in this swap. By the way it never even occurred to me to use the same colourways on the whole puzzle - I have been so busy thinking of each person's theme!! And I agree with Heather and Kelsey - we will always wait for you to blog!

Your puzzle pieces are just gorgeous! What a great idea for a swap.
Thanks for your kind comment about my artwork on my blog. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment.

I love this Jen!!! Every piece is beautiful. The other swap people are going to be thrilled:) Love, Jamie

Teresa said...

What a shame to have to break it up and send it away. I'm sure the recipients will be thrilled to receive a small piece of your work. Well done Jen!

Nadine said...

Hello there Jenny Crossley!!

I'm a bit new to this whole Blog thing-just been to JVO's (holy shit!!) & clicked on the link to yours!! Your puzzle is pretty special you clever lady. I'm suffering SEVERE art envy at the moment, I must say!!

Lindart said...

I've done these puzzle swaps before, and always wondered what it would be like to do the whole puzzle myself - I love what you did. I like this better than a conglomeration of different artists. It will be interesting to see your finished puzzle when you get all your pieces. Please post it! I think I will make a complete puzzle myself. Yours is lovely!

This is awsome and absolutely beautiful! I'd hate to break it up, but at least you have a picture of it!

Holly Stinnett said...

This is stunning... what a fabulous idea! It would be difficult for me to take this apart too. In the end I'm sure you'll love it!
