Using Photoshop, I scanned in Puzzle Pieces #1. After posterizing it (more Photoshop magic), I created #2 and #3 by copying and flipping the image horizontally and vertically. I take great care to line up the flipped images each time because each new image builds on the previous one. Once the lines are off, I have to start all over again.
Then, the fun begins. Once a pattern is set, then I get to use Photoshop's magical tools.

Image-a-day and the OTHER VISIONS challenge
With nearly 300 images, the collection of digital "other visions" will comprise the the bulk of my 2012 Image-a-Day project when it is complete. I welcome suggestions for organizing and cataloging these images.
The prizes: an "other vision" poster in your choice of design for the two best suggestions. Deadline: October 22, 2012.
Where are OTHER VISIONS now?
Some are at the nanoscapes website under "other visions." A small number of the designs are on products at zazzle.com, and others are on fabric and soon on wallpaper at spoonflower. Find a Puzzle Pieces Postcard at zazzle.com now.
Because I post each day, my Facebook and Pinterest friends can see all of the images in date-of-posting order.
Beginning on October 25, 2012, "other visions" designs will begin a limited rotation on this website. I have defined three categories: fabric, tiles and stained glass, and wallpaper.
