Great class. Didn't know about the Transform effect, I always used duplicate to do stuff like this so it's good to know I can use this technique instead and be able to change the whole group through one object. Is there a way to expand the whole pattern of circles Helen?

Used grain effects and blending modes to create texture and played a little with the opacity of some gradients as well.

Worked on this a little more, created a little pattern patch that I'll turn into a repeating pattern so I can turn it into a wallpaper pattern.
