I thought you might be interested to see the process of choosing colours for this stained glass project. I made this same pattern for my Mom, with faceted crystals where you see red circles in this pic. I decided that for my last project of the season I would make one for me using glass from my other projects. I was so sure that the red was going to be the colour I would want to use, but when I cut out the circles I just didn't like it.
I cut out yellow circles, and like them so much better. I still wanted to use red so I tried the red here...
nope, still didn't like it, so I gave up on the red and changed it to purple. I know it looks black, but trust me, it's purple. Perfect! I love it just the way it is.
