Amanda Hillier Written in the Stars 500 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

Astrology is defined as the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world. Amanda Hillier’s out of this world puzzle is a spiritual treat.

Written in the Stars is part of Gibsons range of design-led jigsaw puzzles, especially for adults. With the recent wave of young adults wanting to take a ‘digital detox’ and refrain from using devices that can take over everyday life, puzzling is a popular pastime and an excellent way to relieve stress and focus on the present moment. Their White Logo Collection is perfect for the new wave of puzzlers who are looking for more contemporary designs rather than traditional puzzle scenes.As with all Gibsons jigsaws, Written in the Stars uses 100% recycled puzzle board, vegetable inks and FSC paper. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, Gibsons use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

An artwork poster is included inside the box for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.

About the Artist Amanda Hillier

Amanda grew up in Lincolnshire but now her home is rural Shropshire with her husband and children. She is inspired to reflect the nature and history that she’s surrounded by. She received her art education at Lincoln Art College and has worked in graphic design and illustration ever since. For many years in Nottingham, she worked on packaging for the fashion industry utilising both graphics and illustration skills. Since moving to Shropshire she has used her surroundings to inspire detailed line and colour work for greetings and surface design. More recently she’s enjoyed the graphic intricacy of a range of adult colouring books with nature themes, that she had the pleasure to be part of.

Find Your Zen with Mindful Slow Entertainment

Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to unwind. They demand attention which makes doing them, both absorbing and meditative at the same time. When concentrating on creative pursuits like art, craft or indeed jigsaw puzzles, you subconsciously tune out other distracting thoughts. In essence, your mind goes blank. Furthermore this quieting of the mind is highly therapeutic and forms the basis of meditation practice in eastern religions and philosophies. In Zen Buddhism, every action can become a source of meditation. From simply walking to making things, to doing jigsaws. The art of Zen is to dedicate your mind and thoughts only to the action that you are doing now.
