I liked doing the collage with other people a lot because the finished product came out so nice. Passing around the collages made other people think more and contribute what they thought was celebrity like. If we just made our own collages I would have a lot of trouble. The first collage swap was obviously the hardest because it was a collage that had nothing to do with celebrities. The second time I don't even remember what I had. I learned that working together isn't as bad as I thought it would be. Starting this collage I was a little worried about passing it around but turned out well.

This was a tough assignment; I thought it was hard to find something I wanted to draw and make into a stamp. So I picked something random and it was a nail polish bottle. I wasn't really inspired with this because I didn't like what I was drawing and it didn't come out like I wanted it. Also in 7th or 8th grade we did this project and I had trouble with it then. When I was done my stamp and started printing it I though I did a terrible job with it and I wasn't happy with myself. It was so ugly printing it multiple times.
Starting the fortune cookie book page was the hardest. My fortune was something about heaven and the future. So I just painted what I saw in my head, future always comes to me as outer space or a galaxy and heaven is always bright pastel colors with clouds. The purple and blue side represents the future and the white lines are creeping up the paper, representing technology taking over. But the orange and yellow side represents heaven and how simple I think it is.
