Here's the latest pieces I have recieved. These are from Luvebuggy99
Love the tie-dye look of the rainbow one. And they are both so bright and fit their color schemes so well.
These pieces are from KriSmith
Yellow submarine, complete with music! The slight distress look of these is really interesting. (And would you mind me asking, Kris, what you used to seal these with? I like the finish, but don't think its anything I've used before.)
Mmmm fonts. That's a nice theme. Might have to borrow that idea.
Kimchery, sorry about the glossy glare, I am still learning how to use mod podge. I figured I should really start using it instead of staying with the elmers glue and water I have stuck with since childhood. The mod podge I got said matte. Mod podge and I have a difference of opinion on that....
Oh, there's nothing wrong with being glossy. And your palette piece is great exactly the way it is. I should have thought to take 2 pics since one piece has no finish and one does...
And mod podge is great,... just hard to photograph sometimes. I don't think it matters how much, what kind or how you apply it, it always seems to reflect a bit.
I got another set of pieces from CDEeeek that are awesome!
I see while I was able to get a picture of the glazed piece without reflection, it just darkened the whole picture. They are really bright in person. For my rainbow theme she did an artists palette. One of my favorite things, so that was really cute. And for the yellow she added assorted dimensional elements. Love the little button in the corner. And the background papers are perfect. Thank you, Cynthia! Towards the end I will post an in progress pic. I still have pieces left over (that I wanted to do myself) but I took them out of the puzzle in strips. When I have all my pieces sent back, I will have 4 parts that fit together, even if I don't have all my leftover pieces altered yet.
I did a personal swap with yoopidou for inchies. She chose my 'closeups of masterpieces' theme, which no one has ever done yet. So these were really exciting to get.
Most of the edges are gold, which added the the priceless antique look to them. Not one of them isn't beautiful, but I do like the Cassat, Degas and Dali. For anyone who may be unfamiliar with any of them, the card was a 'cheat sheet' she printed out to compare. Almost like a little game.
I was really excited to get these... Thanks so much yoopidou, they are awesome, and I love that you chose my these that may seem somewhat intimidating.
I got pieces back from 2 partners recently. These are from pilarfarmer
I love the buttons she used, co cute.... My theme was rainbows, and nearly everyone I sent to had a rainbow piece and a single color to do. She ended up with orange and I love the little orange car. I'm already excited about putting my puzzle together! These pieces are from mandymo13
I love the rainbow tiger piece! And ladybugs were a great idea for red. So cute.
Thanks for giving me a great start to my puzzle, you 2!
I am making Kris's today, I am sooo glad our law enforcement ideas didn't cross over. I would have felt silly!
I am working on hers too. Actually, one of the pieces I am making is similar, but very different in style. I stuck to the 'law enforcement' end of those themes, because everything I was imagining that had to do with drugs/ law enforcement was ugly. General police things seemed much more workable. And pleasing to the eye, I guess. Nonetheless, I've been anxious to see all the law enforcement pieces since I read that theme...
I have 2 other partners packed and ready to go. I've had luvebuggy's done since last weekend, yet I haven't made it to the post office. I think 'sending round 1' will be by the end of this week.
