Stained glass created from a selection of urban photographs.
Stained glass created from a selection of urban photographs taken by the Minneapolis Textile Center.
The striped hexagon flower is made from a section of the curved yellow path (with rotation and reflection). The triangle is taken directly from the yarn-wrapped bicycle - and hence is the element which breaks the symmetry (other than a remaining diad). The rhombus is a double mirror reflection of a portion of the hazard warning tape (showing both gold and copper areas around the white). The square is an amalgamation of the weathered blue paintwork and the brick-work paving (with the perspective removed).
The design was deliberately created large (12" by nearly 21") for display purposes but with the ability to be scaled down (eg to 9" by 15½" or 6" by 10½") for other applications. As usual, it can easily be made available in the other orientation instead.
Note that this is intended to be printed with the v2 colour profile.

The colours of this design were dictated by the Textile Center's photos. So I wouldn't do this same thing in different colours, although I would do stained glass in general in other colours.
<br>I initially knew I was out of the contest because I was sent an email saying so! I may have got one of the earliest ones (or perhaps no-one else commented previously because my email was the only one missing the explanatory text!). After that I could see on the design page itself. A designer gets to see an update button on their designs which changes into an edit contest entry button while a design is actively in a contest. There's also evidence in the Actions drop-down menu. For an active contest entry there's the edit contest entry option. For a virgin entry you get the option to enter it in any contests coming up, whereas an old contest entry is not allowed into a subsequent contest.
<br>In my experience, designers don't see the colour blocks on their own normal design pages while logged in. They only see colour blocks on other people's design pages. If you view your pages while not logged into the website (eg using a different browser) you should see the colour blocks. However, the colour blocks automatically generated for my designs are usually very wrong! This design was a rare exception.

Just one more question please if you wouldn't mind (I'm new around here!) - how do you get the colour code of your design to display above your design? Again, perhaps I'm missing something really obvious but it seems to be on everyone else's but not on mine! Thanks a lot.
Sef, please forgive me if I'm being blind and haven't noticed something, but how do you know you've been 'booted out of the contest'?
Great lively design! Would love to see this in other colourways.
... and apparently that last part was completely wasted effort, since it got booted out of the contest at the pre-selection stage. Not that they would probably have liked any of my other options either! :-D
It was a bit of a rush after being too busy for a lot of weeks (although the idea had always been an option, apart from the photo issues which eventually got discussed). I'd spent my few spare moments instead doing the things that *I* wanted to do. However, the overall grid was on my long-term todo list anyway. So I put a bit of effort into it earlier in the evening and then made the pieces with which to populate it rather late into the (UK) night!
