my daughter brought home this fun artwork she did in math class…They were learning about tessellation and this is where I pretend to know something about math…which I do not. (i had to google tessellations)
I used to be good a math.
then i had kids.
but I will testify that I do have to use math quite a bit in sewing and cutting wood and angles and other random stuff that makes my eyes glaze over. So even if you are in high school and you say to yourself, “self, i don’t need math..i’m going to be a craft blogger when I grow up.” well slap yourself cause you need to wake up! Math is everywhere and in everything (unfortunately)
This did remind me of MC Escher artwork (and I do know about artwork. I managed to stay awake in this class)
Here’s how you do it..
You need some graph paper, a pencil, scissors, tape and a paper to draw on.
You cut out a square (it can be any size) and then draw a design on two sides. cut out each design and then tape it to the opposite side. (right across from it.) You can do this without grid paper…but it helps to line things up perfectly! (you can do a curve on these as well…we did a minnie and micki mouse one for my daughter!
Then start tracing..
