For this week, I worked again with the theme of abstract pattern and mixed media. 

Whilst reading this week's prompts, I had clear ideas how I wanted each of my pieces to look. I used Photoshop and my Wacom tablet to jot these down, as I knew I wouldn't have time to work on them for a while. I find note making like this, whilst a mess to most people, really helps me streamline and capture my ideas. 

I worked on all of these ideas but only 5 were ready by the end of this week. The others are building up layers and texture... not quite finished yet
