I finished the Kincade puzzle. I used cedar wood with a white glaze then before it set up I sprinkled glitter on it then shot a few coats of clear lacquer.

I think the frame ties in to the picture sorta…

That one piece down towards the the bottom was missing so I made a piece out of formica, which is close to the same thickness of the puzzle then painted it before I covered the puzzle with Elmer’s white glue. Always use white glue cause it will dry satin an have no reflections. Can you see the piece I made?
