Not much sense in doing a sorting except to get the edge pieces out and similar colors together.
I did lay all the pieces out onto two foam boards which confirms I have all the edge pieces.
So 'the plan of attack' for these 4 Element puzzles will be the big letters first then look for the largest sections of colors/patterns/objects. Then just continuously pick away at items by placing them into their 'estimated' areas, one by one which eventually will match up.
As you can see in the image below there are a lot of sporadic unfilled areas due to the extreme amount of details and items. We often refer to these images as busy but this one was almost as challenging as the Fire then came the Air and then the Water puzzle, all of which I have completed now.
The following 4 images shares closeup of some of the details and the 5th image shows the size of the small images in comparison to the big letters.
I chose the Elements Series of 4 puzzles titled Water, Air, Fire and Earth as part of my selection of annual reviews for Cobble Hill Puzzle Company. The Element Series is created by Shelley Davies. They are a new Series for 2019 and you can check the following link to locate the Preferred Retailers and the Online Stores for purchasing.
I have submitted all 4 completed puzzles to the World Puzzle Days which Cobble Hills Puzzle Company is one of the Sponsors as well. Thanks to Cobble Hills and Shelley Davies, I have now completed 4 out of 4! Great job on this Series!
