Trouble linking 3 Digit Objects while doing speed numbers

Hello, I want to start off by saying that I was quite excited when I learnt my 3 Digit System (92% Objects, 8% People) by heart and at a fast pace (less than a sec per image). However I am troubled because I find it hard to link objects, I place 2 images per locus. When I encounter a pair of objects, I find it extremely difficult for me to link them together and actually remember them. What I am asking is for advice for how some of you with 3 digit systems link pair of objects properly together. For example: 256 674: Nail Jewel and Sugar pot: I imagine the sugar pot leaking sugar on the nail jewel --> The Second image doing the action on the First image. Is this an issue, should I make the first do the image to the second? How do you guys link your objects? Do you for example put one object on top of the other or do you keep the order of the images with a story line? Or do you recommend switching to 3 images per locus?

-I am the type of person that remembers something better if I can Visualize it properly (which I can they are all objects and the people I chose are fictional characters I watch all the time) and 2 if there is a good story line or sense into what the heck is happening.

Help would really be appreciated, Thank you.

I struggle with this sometimes, too, although I am still using a 2-digit system. For a nail jewel and sugar pot, I would just imagine a big finger with a nail jewel plunging into the sugar pot from above. When memorizing, I tend to go either left-to-right or top-to-bottom to make sure I get the sequence correct. I think the majority of the best mental athletes use two images per locus. You'll get better with practice. You may want to practice just reading off the random numbers, converting them into your images, and imagining the interaction between the two, without actually memorizing.

You need to experiment with each way. You might find out some images work better as the 1st image to 2nd image or 2nd image to 1st image. You have a lot of possible combinations so only practice will tell which way works for you.

If the first object or image is bigger tan the second, is easy to remember the order (biger is the first because captivate your attention first).
Also with the first image, you can imagine something that captivate your attention more tan the second image, for to know the order:
For example if the first image is a CAKE and the second is PIRATE, you can imagine:
that cake slapped in the face of the pirate and the pirate annoyed of that. This way: THE CAKE CAPTIVATE MORE YOUR ATTENTION THAN THE PERSON, so cake is the first..

As Parkouristx said, experiment and think which combinations can you do.
