Considerations, how to use this activity:
Consider the space around the images you draw
How do the 7 images look collectively?
Is there an emerging theme or style or colour?
What colours do we associate with words?
eg shamrock: green

Work imaginatively!
The included example uses a black ball point pen and felt tips
