For this project I had to come up with a motif by combining two simple shapes. I combined two squares to make a star. Then I had to create a grid with a hundred images of my motif glued down. Once I had them glued down I used tracing paper to trace different design combinations using my motif. Once I had settled on one design I had to ink it on illustration board using india ink. Here is my original grid:
Here are my different design combinations on tracing paper:
Here is my final motif:
I got compliments on my craftsmanship and placement of the sparse stars in the bottom right corner. The class agreed that it would have been better if I had left a white border around it.
