Once again so enjoyed this class!
Helen, you are always expanding our horizons and so I decided to take a flight with patterns (from other classes of yours) and butterflies. It did become a bit confusing expanding patterns and making extra clipping masks.
Here is a tile or a slice of the pie in the sky.
Now enhanced with effects and shadows.
Trying to keep it's symmetry here but, with a touch of asymmetry.
...venturing out beyond, going "outside of the box". This was fascinating and it lends its self to some unique abstractions!
Thank You Helen!
