chapter 2

First I had to choose a colour scheme to work with throughout this module. The starting point for my colour scheme was the aspect of a mixture of strawberries and blueberries in yellow salad bowl. I decided that this will become my colour scheme

 I found the instruction to pleat this 3 dimensional shapes here: Tomoko Fuse's Espiral(Spiral)
I worked it with coloured tissue paper.For me it tooka lot of time to understand the manner of pleating. But it
was worth the effort.

 This could be a starting point for a piece of jewellery.
The warm up exercises offer a lot of material for the resolve sample and an accessory, which should be something useful and embellish for me.
