This is my stencil, the Mockingjay from The Hunger Games. I enjoyed this project very much; it was really fun carving the drawing out of the paper with an xacto knife and creating the stencil. We used photo shop to change the threshold and create positive and negative space. Doing this created contrast and made the picture black and white. Using the spray paint was a new experience, but I enjoyed it. I used pages from a book as a backround because the Mockingjay is from a book that I love. I love the colors I chose to spray paint with because the Mockingjay pin that the character in the book has is golden. Although this project was sometimes frustrating, I really enjoyed doing it.

Light Drawings

This project was really cool and fun. We set cameras up and made the capture time longer, so that it would be able to capture all the light that we showed. We used a stencil for the Statue of Liberty, but for everything else, I just used my phone. The first picture was an attempt at a flower...haha. The second is a heart. The third is HEF, my initials. the forth and fifth are stars and the sixth is the statue of liberty stencil. I had a lot of fun doing this project. My group was really fun to work with. We all had a good time trying to think of objects to portray, and seeing how they turned out.

Animal Prints

This project is really cool because we carved sketches onto linoleum and we made prints out of them. It's important to use textures while sketching so we can use the sketches as good reference while we're carving. When we printed, it was really cool to see our pieces in different colors and seeing all the textures. It was pretty difficult to carve into a rubbery sheet, but it was really fun. Although it took a lot of time, I enjoyed making important details. I'm happy with my work and love how it turned out!
