  • Car & Fish

    Hello Again,
    Here are a couple new puzzles. I wanted to experiment with color line cutting after admiring many of the finished works I've seen on this board. I'll admit these weren't the best choices for that, but I still had fun.

    These are both 7x5 inches printed on Epson Glossy Photo paper. I used 3M spray adhesive and coated it with Gloss Medium & Varnish. They are 80 & 88 pcs respectively.

    Comments and criticism welcome!
    Thanks,
    Cristin

    Beautiful puzzles, Cristin....

    I like your move into color-line cutting. These pictures may not look like they lend themselves to that style, but the Fish certainly does. There are all sorts of shapes in the water that can be used, and you've taken advantage of quite a few of them.

    One of the sort of "myths" people seem to have when they first get into color-line cutting is that pieces should, at least generally, be the same size. Who says????? If you're going along color lines some may be large and some may be rather tiny. If they have to be too small, I've sometimes packaged them in a separate little box within the mixed-up puzzle pieces (as in a puzzle called "Squaw Council" I posted recently).

    Good work!!! You family will treasure these for a long time!

          Great puzzles and cutting of them. A 1955 Buick Roadmaster. My Mother had the same car and I just loved "borrowing" it from time to time.
