Puzzle Pieces

I had a request to do this rainbow puzzle piece on a black background for a team of teachers.  I have to admit that getting those colors to show up on black presented a bit of a challenge.  I ended up painting the background black around the sketched out shape so that it stayed white.

After I had all of the colors and shading the way I wanted it in the pieces, I just had to do a little touching up with the black.  They are all coated with a fine layer of glitter for a little extra sparkle!  I just love how they turned out and know they look fabulous outside their classroom doors!

I've got lots more teacher canvases coming!!  With the end of school and getting ready for Sweet Ila Mae's, I'm behind on my postings.  Check back soon!
