Country Pumpkins Jigsaw Puzzle

The Country Pumpkins Jigsaw Puzzle captured many of the pastel colours and essence of Fall. With plenty of details, this one turned into a very delight completion and the extra 5 pieces is quite a creative idea to make this a unique puzzle.

Country Pumpkins Jigsaw Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border was not to be completed at the beginning this time due to the puzzle shapes - it will get worked in during progress.

In actuality the border was not complete until very close to the end.

The Standout Falling Stars jigsaw puzzle has VERY random cut pieces and some are quite small. It was tricky to determine the entire border but that is typical for this die-cut pattern.

The sky seemed to be the best place for 'take off' so I started there. Then I determined the most outstanding colors to be blue, red and yellow. That way the buildings could be built upon. Being that the artwork is brush-strokes most of the assembly is done by colors and shapes.

Most of the shrubbery, pumpkins and extra landscape was second last and the big main tree was the last area assembled.

Country Pumpkins Jigsaw Juzzle Comments

The matte finish is always nice on these puzzles. As is the cut and quality of Standout jigsaw puzzles. Since the puzzle is sold in a tube-like container, an insert image/poster is included inside the container which is most helpful. (shown below)

As part of their marketing feature,  Standout includes (in a separate little bag) 5 extra pieces to mix within the pieces. I transferred the pieces from the container into an empty puzzle box for sorting.

Once I got into the groove of the image the rest of the experience was terrific! 

You can see from these close up photos just how colourful this Artist Anita Skinner creates her fine contemporary art. She has an incredible amount of artwork displayed online CLICK HERE
