Thanks so much, Diane--and I'm relieved that you're no longer from COLD N.J.!!!

This was really impressive loved all the rectangles in different colors that were all woven together in crazy ways. Thank you. DIANE FROM N.J.

Well, what I was thinking of doing was overlapping two colors outside the area where I've got my drawing going, and then using the eye dropper to "sop up" the resulting color and put it in the drawing. I haven't tried it, but I think that might work--I hope! LOL!

Pat, I don't think it will come out the same. If you look carefully, you'll see that even the black lines fade underneath the transparent strips...so you'd have to end up coloring all those lines if you used Paint, unless the newest version of Paint can 'deal' with it.

Thanks, Ardy and Wendy! It also adds a greater degree of difficulty in the large version--when I solved it, the parts where it overlapped were much harder to place. Oh, well, I have only myself to blame! :-))) But I did notice that some of the overlapping colors were ones that I couldn't get with Paint before, which surprised me. I think that I might try mixing them this way, and then using them on their own the next time, if I can...

Pat, this is TERRIFIC! The translucent ones add a new and different touch....almost exciting! :-)

Lots of pretty rectangles in an interesting design. Thanks, Pat.

Thanks, Edie and Katie--it sure took me long enough to realize that translucent overlaps worked better, because they both partly conceal and partly change the colors underneath. I guess you can teach an old Jigidier new tricks. :-)))
