When I posted the tessellation tutorial I didn't have a photo of this one at this stage. I took this photo and you can see what I have done with the shapes I cut in this layout. You also see the base is larger than I needed, but that is much better than it not being big enough. I am still not sure this will be the final layout. I will study it some more and possibly will add or change a few things before I finish it.
This closeup allows you to see the design section better.
