For me the process of design is all about constantly going back to the drawing board. For our upcycle project I have had to do this with the design I intend to create using a mosaic of blank CD pieces. It is very hard to cut CDs with scissors and especially to make clean straight cuts. This has made me rethink the pattern I want to do. I either need to find a new cutting tool and go buy a box cutter or something similar, or I make the pattern more freeform and abstract. Another thing I am exploring is using the natural shape of the CB and making curves and circles instead of rectangles. These are all things I still have to decided on. Additionally I need to decide which side on the CD I want to show the reflective fun side or the matte gold side. The gold side goes really well with the art deco aesthetic I am aiming for but you cant really tell it was made from a CD where as on the shiny side you can…. decisions decisions.
