Altered Art Magnets

I started making altered art puzzle pieces long before I realized you could buy blank ones in craft stores. I found a couple of old puzzles in the basement that my kids had outgrown, i.e., with pieces large enough to paint, distress, collage, grunge, add vintage buttons, embellish with photographs, type, etc.

There is a great satisfaction in making recycled art, although I admit to purchasing more than my fair share of art supplies, I'm always gathering the old stuff others discard, the kind you can read about in most every artist's book on collage, collecting, assemblage technique. I have the same feeling they described, of always having been a packrat, now I'm one with purpose.

I am so impressed with your altered art magnets! How creative to embelish the puzzle piece. Very interesting and fun.
