question mark


I am thinking of doing a short workshop using a simple design technique. So I have spent the morning playing around with paper cut outs...could have been doing the ironing/cleaning/shopping but snipping with scissors was more fun!

I took a punctuation mark( question mark) and, freehand, drew it bold and chunky. Folded paper into a concertina and drew round and cut out the basic shape. I kept one for a template and used the others to create the following repeat patterns.


 

 

This last one looked nice when laid horizontally.There is a lot of possibility in such a simple shape, I may have to have a cup of coffee and play a little more :)
