How my Brain works part 1

The new term looms and what I am wondering am I going to go with my big open ended projects. Then a friend is having a big birthday and I think; make a map to find the next big party.

For this last post of this half term here’s a summary of work so far. As well as the two plate prints for the index sheets I’ve also been varying the colour on the main plate.
