Coat your puzzle piece with Gesso if you are going to apply paint or ink to it
Paint the piece with the base colour of your choice, here I used Seedless preserves distress paint
Using a mask over the top of your piece, paint through the mask with a lighter colour.
Squeeze some stickles glue onto a non porous surface and use a pallette knife or similar to spread over a different mask.
Place the mask over the piece again, lining up with the stickles layer and apply a coat of clear texture paste This allows the gliter to show through the raised texture.
Allow the texture paste to dry before adding embelishments to finish off your piece. Heating with a heat gun will cause the paste to bubble which can be cool but only if you want that effect.
Add flowers, pins, text or any other embellishments to finnish off your puzzle piece.
