Prompt: Explain how you developed your design for your book carving. well i ahd just been to science class(2nd period) and we were talking about venus fly traps and stuff in the class, we come here and one of the ideas were scientific, the rest is history.
How important was it to have a clear plan before starting? VERY important the entire project had to be carefully planned out, if it wasent, it could end in disaster, the whole cutting a book thing ment you couldn't mess up.
What were the challenges you faced when working on this project? Explain how you overcame them. the challenges was at the beggining, getting to the point where i wasent mad at it was hard, eventualy though i becan to really work hard and it got completed.
 Discuss your design and how it relates to the book you chose (if that was the case, if not just discuss design). Did you take any risks? How and why?  my design was not at all related to teh book, im pretty srue it had something to do with the KKK or something like that, but the design was a bunch of venus fly traps, ready to kill unsuspecting flys, purly beautiful. i took as many risks as pages i had cut out, every page was tetious.
Describe how you felt about the overall project and if you felt it was successful. i think it was a huge sucess, i am in love with this project, it was very hard, but fun and the end result is amazing, i like it,  a lot. this is by far my favorite piece, in general.

Dance party!

Dance party!

1. How did you show amusement and variety in your piece? Explain your choice of subject matter and how you created a unified piece of art.
i showed amusement through the dance floor and disco's and classical music, best party ever! now the variety was well... variety... the people are made of tons of different material, there's ,sharpie, and marker. that gave it variety.
2. Describe your experience with using mixed media. What mixed media did you use for your piece?
it was well.. this was the second thing i did, it was this, and it was fun to make, didn't think I'd finish it though. i used tons of materials, like sharpie, marker, and tons of this weird material stuff. it was really cool!
3. What role did our lessons on visual journaling play in the success of your piece? Explain.
well... a lot actually. a TON of help, it basically was a guide line for this project, so yeah, it helped.
4. Discuss any challenges you experienced and how you overcame obstacles.
any problems? well, not really, the only thing that stuck me as "trouble" per say, would be gluing the people on in the different pieces and cutting them out as well. that's basically the only trouble.
