When doing this project I had a hard time using my knife and cutting out the pieces. When being told to keep it simple I now understood why it was said because simplicity was what I needed in order to create a pattern that wasn’t too difficult to re-due several times for the final part of the project. I learned that using the simplest forms of shapes can make a well drawn out pattern. Also that there doesn’t need to be any form of symbolism to create such a piece of art work. I never worked on a project that had no symbolism it was quit interesting. overall this project taught me more about cutting with a knife and also about craftsmanship which was a major component to this project.
