I purchased the Trick or Treat jigsaw puzzle through her Kickstarter which she created the image from using her own children in the image.
I knew this one would be 'tricky' due to the dark Halloween colours. I sorted the pieces as best as I could but as you can see it is mostly dark pieces along with some pink, orange, yellow and green. (Continued below....)
The border was not assembled first thing but rather I jumped right into the brightest colors. Once the most obvious colors were basically in place, I started to build on the pumpkins and the moon patterns on the left and right sides. After completing that, as you can see, almost half the pieces left were dark browns and blacks. That of course being a Halloween image is required and I knew going into this puzzle image that would be the case.
The Trick or Treat Jigsaw Puzzle produced by Ashkeri and artist Keri Baker is a 1000 piece, 20" by 28" which is a 'trickster' and a delightful 'treat' when completed. Here's come closeup photos showing better details in the artwork.
The finish is shiny and I apologize for the glare but the close up photos above (without the glare) shows the terrific talent by the Artist Keri Baker.
