I've made the final 3 squares having decided 12 will be the final amount, and have used string, sequins, pvc, canvas and enamel paint in addition to the materials I had already used.
I have layed the final 12 squares out in landscape...
I think I'm going to go with the portrait layout when I fix them together, I just haven't decided wether to stitch them as originally planned though, I'm veering towards not doing so, only fixing them on the reverse in some way.

I've now made 9 squares and have so far used: Card, Acrylic Paint, Suedette, Minerva, Foam, Foil Sweet Wrappers, Mirror Card and Wood Effect Paper.
Still unsure how many more there will be or how it will be finally laid out - do I make it portrait, landscape or square?, I'll decide later.

Inspired by seeing Steven Harringtons' "Community" featured in the book Illustration and incorporating Robert Indianas' iconic "LOVE" and "HOPE" having seen them in New York, I have begun making 15cm squares using different materials to create each one. I then plan to stitch them together to make a mosaic of LOVEs' and HOPEs', I don't know what the final size of the piece will be yet, it will depend on how many different way's of making each square I can come up with.
