This has to be one of the most unique projects I have ever done it an art class. My first piece of art I don't even remember what it looks like or the color scheme. But I remember I tried to put heart into it. When we had to give up the first part of this project I was a bit upset, I was getting quite attached to it. But when I got my second piece I realized I'd have to take this a different angle then the first one. It was a bit incomplete and barely had any work put into it. I could not do much to this but I could help it just a bit. (It was kinda suffering). I didn't really make it much better then before. Just added more pictures. Then the last part was most difficult, I felt like I lost most of my creative side and felt like I was getting sidetracked with this part of the project. I was not happy with the outcome, I think I could do better if it was a better topic, rather then 'Celebrity'..but I could manage. One life lesson I could take from this project was: 'Don't expect people to always fix the messes you made'. Although, this was not a mess. This was art! I was extremely surprised by the out come of others, they were spectacular! Overall this project was not my best but was really fun T heart. Honestly.
The pop print was something that I have done within the past and a fun time doing so. The item that I choose was a small blue plastic basket, it seemed easy to draw but a pain to carve. So I thought it as a semi-hard challenge. I had originally wanted to go with a different item, but I had a sudden change of mind. This item seemed unique and plain at the same time to me. After I carved and printed the stamp enough to get me a tad bored with it, so my friend and I decided to take the printing a new way. We took the colors of the rainbow and ran them over the stamp and printed it. It was honestly beautiful to me and I loved it a lot. After that I was no longer bored with the stamp, more like, intrigued. I wanted to do more stamps afterward but sadly, we were done with said project.Overall I really enjoyed this project. Very fun.
