I just started learning Illustrator about 3 weeks ago and I'm having so much fun.  I started with Majo's Reign Repeats Skillshare class.  I'm looking forward to this project, but late getting my stuff posted.

This class really got me going and made me think about series.  I just wanted to update with a couple of series I have finished this week.

This is one that the cover photo eventually morphed into.  I call it "Melody's Zinnias".

And I just finished this one tonight:  I am calling it "Ocean Dreams".

Thank you so much, Jenna for offering this class.  I don't have much of a budget for classes, so getting to do this with you was such a wonderful treat and was so very helpful!
