Sorry for being so long in posting. I am loving all the pieces people are getting, and the finished puzzles look fabulous!
I've received my last three sets of pieces:
The incandescent one is really more purple than green, and I love all the beads and bits she used!
from sg1psychopath (did you get my pieces yet? They're the last ones that are still out there)
I really like the blue and pink glittery one, and I wish I could paint small like the little blossoms.
I love the brown one. It looks like a pile of leaves that I want to jump into.
And here's my puzzle after Round 2:
I have seven pieces to do, I'll do at least one, but I think I can get the rest done with friends and family, because I can't wait to start a themed puzzle in the next round! I'm just thrilled with this one, now I just have to figure out how I'm going to display it!
And here are some pieces I've sent that I know have been received:
for gala_apples. Reading/books themed:
The red one is just reading/book related pictures from French and Russian language books I have, and the one on the right is thesaurus entries for read, word, and journey. I always photograph my own stuff on dictionary pages, and that one really blends right in to the page!
and for lindsayrose. Grunge themed:
I'm so happy with the way the left one turned out. It's a new technique I tried out, laying paint on really thick and then mushing it around under a piece of plastic wrap and letting it dry like that. It's really texturey, and it was the first idea I had when I heard her theme.
Thanks so much to everyone for making this a great swap! We've still got a few pieces out there, please check the status update on the first page and let me know if I'm missing any information!
