Project Description

Create a 3-pattern collection using the techniques you learned in class.

Step 1: Find an existing hero pattern you’d like to work with (OR make a new one).
Step 2: Create a second coordinate using some of the motifs from your hero pattern.
Step 3: Create a third, simple geometric pattern to round out the collection.
Step 4: Upload an image of your pattern collection to your class project… and you’re done!
