I found small multi-packs of canvases at Michaels and picked up a few. They are an economical way to create little pieces of art. I save paper towels from when I do alcohol ink projects. I decoupaged those on the canvases for an instant background. In the tower bins at Michaels I found packages of assorted embossed shapes. I painted those and ran some chalk ink over them to highlight the embossing. I painted the chipboard letters so they would match and assembled them all, spelling out BEGIN.
The puzzle pieces are embossed with metallic embossing powder. The hearts are layers of metal and are wired onto the puzzles pieces.
