In this Unit (two), I have done well on making creative patterns, because when I was creating my own motif I wanted to show my culture influence New Zealand (NZ) In NZ flag there is the flag of England, next to that there is a small star around it. So in my motif I made the star for the base and added the “Union Jack” and some star in it. I am proud of changing my motif from wing interlock to heart interlock because when I was creating a motif I struggled with making interlocks on the top and bottom. It didn’t seem to interlock very well. So I collaborated with my friends to make a new motif. I think that made me a better collaborator and thinker. I think the weakness of my pattern(motifs) is my personal interest because of my personal interest I was trying to create a full body dog but turned out to be a food (Bone). I think I used my creative thinking but I think I should have thought more deeply about how I can make the dog interlock. So I think my weakness is” giving up easily.”
I think my interlocking is good because I have changed my motifs to make it seem better and interlock better. At the very beginning, I was planning on making a wing and a dog. But my final motif is a heart and a food (bone) I am going to interlock the heart on the top and bottom, food (bone) on left and right. For my food (Bone) I have cut it in half from top to bottom. For my heart, I sliced it from left to right. So it is creative. When printing my motifs onto the paper, I am thinking of Green on the corners. Blue in the middle and other left spaces, Red and Black. It is not like it has been randomly placed because I am using the Green on the edges to show the freedom (Grass), the middle is a New Zealand’s flag colour. The black and red part shows the Maori from New Zealand, this is also showing my culture influence.
