Pattern Source

This is my original design.


Block Title

"Knowledge Is Power" is our family motto. 


This Leg of the Journey Completed November 2007

Our family motto in Latin is, "Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est," which translates, "knowledge is power."

When designing this block I wanted to use symbols of knowledge. I thought about using many different elements, including a lantern, and tested the look of the block. I finally decided on a laurel wreath and a book, and on the pages of the book, our motto in Latin. 

This design would work really well with any motto or sentiment.


Lesson Learned

When designing a block, make mock-ups to test the various design elements. You'll know when you've found the right design.

BLOCK 17 COMING SOON!
