moonphases

moonphases - student project

I loved this class! Making the patterns with a large grid like this has a fun Sudoku puzzle feel, and as beginner in pattern making I really like the simple approach. I did not keep track of all my steps, but I did try to use these icons in a pattern earlier, so I feel I have a good "before" vs "after" example.

This is the first time I tried to make a random pattern with my moonphases and stars icons:

I used an 8x8 panel, because I'm not sure yet what it's for, but I gridded it into small squares, one moon and one star to each row. Here's the new and I think improved version:

I plan to try this technique again with line work icons.
