I was really excited about this when it first began... I think I took it too lightly. I thought this assignment was going to be easier than it was. I thought I would have a much easier time of coming up with ideas for this. That wasn't so much the case. It took a lot more thought than I thought it would but, regardless, I think I did the best I could with representing my fortunes... And the fortune cookies were yummy ;)
I won't lie. When this project was first introduced, it stressed me out. How was I supposed to rely on other people to do my work for me? Well I sucked it up and just did it. I let my mind do all the work and tried to leave people with what I would want given to me. I did not get emotionally attached to the papers I have to pass on, but I was sure to do quality work. In the end, I feel that I did a very good job making it my own and a decent job of representing the theme of celebrity.
I loved this project. Carving the stamp was a lot of fun. It took a really long time but it made me feel very professional! I chose to do the bottle of paint because it reminded me of my childhood. When I was little, I always painted with crayons paint. I guess I have always been creative!! ;) as a whole, seeing everyone's prints together, it intrigued me. I liked seeing interpretations of everyday objects by different people. As a whole, I really liked this project.
