Sunflower Octagon 2 Demo
The bottom page shows the triangular cutout I made from a sunflower. I created a mirror image triangle and formed a diamond shape which I rotated to form the ocatgonal figure you see here. I could have widened the diamonds to make them fit together or narrowed them to make a twelve sided figure. As is, this appears to be a mistake; but I decided to duplicate this figure, and put it behind the first one. I them rotated it 30° to create the top image. You almost can't go wrong with this approach. I could happily spend all my time creating these kinds of designs.
