Do NOT skip this step!

Look at your kite-like shape carefully. Use your imagination. What does it look like? A kite? A cat? A car? Your sister? Please, do NOT copy my seashells. Be original!

Edit the outline, to make it look more like that thing (kite, cat, car, snarkenfliffer, sister...).Remember that each time you change one side, you must make the same change to another side of the basic shape-- if you do, then all the kmethods-tracing-paper-2-20.shtmlite-like "tile" shapes will fit together without gaps or overlaps.

That's tessellation.
