This one is a more advanced task (Esp to created the initial puzzle pieces.)

Here’s a brief summary of the steps I took:

  1. Make all vector puzzle pieces
  2. Put in letters
  3. Put circle over top
  4. Press ALT+F3 to launch lens docker
  5. Set circle to be a fish eye lens
  6. Freeze the lens group
  7. Ungroup result
  8. Find circle shape, apply radial fountain fill to it from white at center to black at edges
  9. Set circle shape to 100% multiply merge mode using transparency tool in uniform mode
