A Puzzler

Did you know that January is national puzzle month?

I have completed one 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle with Happy Buttons:

And I am working on a second one with Houseplants:

Sometimes my weird birds start out like a puzzle:

I started this trio in watercolor. Then I added a little paper collage:

Next, some details with color pencils:

And finished with pencil shading:

What kind of puzzles do YOU like to work on?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! πŸ™‚

  1. I love this one Jill! Great mixed media combo, they are adorable! I love jigsaw puzzles too, but these days I do them on my laptop for convenience {thejigsawpuzzles.com}

  5. They’re cute! I like the silly look on the red one on the left. 😜

    I like word search puzzles, and light crosswords do those count?

  6. I love doing puzzles too, especially 1,000 piece ones. But since I have a kitty who would absolutely love to β€œhelp” me, I got a jigsaw puzzle app for my iPad instead. I was thinking of doing a post about puzzles anyway, if I do, is it okay if I include a link to this post? πŸ˜€πŸ±πŸΌ

  7. Delightful birds! I have never really been a person to enjoy puzzles…but as I am housebound (I slipped outside with dog in my arms and broke a whole bunch of bones and had to have emergency surgery Sunday night) a puzzle might just be the thing to do when I am bored. I think I might look at puzzle apps and see how I manage those! Cheers Jill!

    • Oh Louise, I am so sorry to hear that you fell and had to have surgery! No fun! 😧 I hope you recover quickly and aren’t in a lot of pain. ❀️ Several people have suggested online jigsaw puzzle apps but I haven’t checked them out yet. Please take good care of you! Sending hugs! πŸ₯°


  8. We always do puzzles at the beach. Maybe this summer? More likely 2022. (K)

  9. And I thought the button jigsaw would be hard but the plant one even more so πŸ˜ΌπŸ™€

    • Hi Sally, I found them each challenging but oh, so fun! 😊 I finished the houseplant one tonight. Yippee! πŸ™Œ
      I have one on butterflies to do next that I think will be a greater challenge as the picture is smaller and more complex. πŸ¦‹
