Working sheet for chapter 6

My first working sheet! I suppose it is the same idea as a sketchbook. However I am not used to anyone else seeing my sketchbooks! 

 I have scanned and printed images from my design sheets. Some I have printed onto acetate then layered them up and re scanned them - printed them again.
 Images from my design sheets - designs printed onto old map then overlaid with a scanned image of black cutout designs on acetate. Produces quite complex and interesting images.

Experienting with the layered images. Printed off on paper then used to make another cutout!
