          Great job on that Derek. Feels great to cut your own patterns, doesn't it?

            That looks good to me, Derek. No advice on portraits from me though, since I've never done one - kinda feeling left out at the moment with this flood of first portraits ...

              Thanks for the comments. It does feel good to cut something of your own.
              Frustrating, but well worth it. Almost forgot.... Shhhh!!!!! It's a Christmas gift.

                    I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                    I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                    First off how thick is the board you cut?
                    When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                    that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                    for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                    I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                    Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                    Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
