I enjoyed the process of the pop print art project. First we had to bring in a blue object and my object was a pack of Collgate Wisp. We then we're given a rectangular piece of rubber and made stamps based on the object we brought in. I really liked carving the box of Wisp and giving it the design it has on the stamp. When I completed my stamp I then used the stamp on a rectangular piece of paper to complete the project. I stamped the print in light blue three times vertically and then two times horizontally. When the prints we dry I used red sharpie to color inside of the Wisp box. To finalize the project I colored the perimeter of the Wisp box with green sharpie.

Our class started the fortune cookie inspired book page project by opening 7 fortune cookies. We had the opportunity to choose which fortune we liked the most. I read through all my fortunes and found one that inspired me. The fortune was "The philosophy of one century is common sense for the next." This quote inspired me because I thought about all the new and improved things we have made based on the original ones made before us. With this project I also used the newspaper background. On this collage I used the words future and past to describe the fortune that I had choose. First I drew an old time telophone and the drew a cell phone that we use today. I also drew an old time radio and a radio that we use today. I did this because it shows how much our iventions have improved over time.
Throughout the art x 3 project I had expierienced three different pieces of art. I think my best piece of art was definitely my last collage. Our goal was to make a collage of celebrities. The celebrity topic of my collage was sport celebrities. I started my final piece of art with a newspaper background. I really like the way it looks behind the rest of the collage. Next I cut out athletes that play different sports and glued them over top of the newspaper. I also added the words sports and fame to add to the topic of athlete celebrities. I finalized the art x 3 project by painting the white outline with a light blue paint. I really like how my final collage turned out.
