The final week of our class we focused on the substrate Wood. For our mini we were given the assignment of mark making. First i sketched out products i could see myself making from wood. .Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 10.28.05 PM

Then one of my classmates (thanks to Lynda Malachesky Metcalf) shared a way of making marks and textures digitally through a new app for iPhone from Adobe called Adobe Shape. i was so excited i went out and took pictures of my yard and garden and converted them to vector  patterns and then used them on my various products as well as some hand-drawn elements.
