2. Ideas.

I like to design dreamcatchers. I made one for a t-shirt brand like two years ago, then I thought it would be cool if I make another one for this class. Also, I like the concept of the 'Flower of Life', which is a spiritual symbol made of overlapping circles. It's used for decoration in some cultures. It's popular these days thanks to Coldplay's album 'A Head Full of Dreams', which I'm a fan of.

This is a drawing by Leonardo Da Vinci. I used it as inspiration.

Here's the final design...

I made some small fixes to the original design. Here's the updated version...

4. Finished Design on Template. 

I included the phrase 'Post Tenebras Lux', which means 'Light After Darkness'. It fits with the concept of the dreamcatcher.

Update: I moved the dreamcatcher and changed the colors of the bottom right design. Also, I added a circle around the 'Flower of Life' on the bottom left.

Well, that's all for now.
