A tradition had been passed down

For my RetRo CAfe ARt  design piece today, I am sharing my movable puzzle collage. You may not know it but, I love to do any kind of puzzle or brain teaser. It's the challenge of how things relate or fit together that interests me. It just so happens that I discovered that the Retro Cafe Art shadow box frame , perfectly and I do mean perfectly fits 4 dominoes! The best part about this is that the dominoes have two sides so you can take them out and change the look of your piece all the time. Who says you always need to decide when making art. LOL!

Well, to create this piece I started by painting gold and stamping text on to the frame. Each of the dominoes has vintage images from the RCA Microslide 1 collage sheet. I added some gold Stickles highlights and some hand cut text too. The frame is accented with RCA golden hearts and some black and gold filigree ribbon. The sentiment reads " A tradition had been passed down."

Hope you will solve your own sort of  puzzle this week.
take care, gerri
