For this, we made an art piece based on fortune cookies. For this, I just had things in mind like wishing and hope. Also luck. All those words inspired me to make this. The wishing we'll represents wish and the stars are luck. The starts are like shooting stars. Shooting stars are lucky. When you get fortunes you wish for something good and hopefully you get luck so you have a good fortune. This was a hard assignment for me because I never knew what to draw or paint. This is my second fortune cookie paper because my first one started out good but ended bad so I started over and this happened.
The art times three was very interesting. You had a piece of paper in front of you and you started something. Them you get it passed on and you get someone else's. You work on that then it gets passed on. You get another paper for the third time and that is your piece to finish and keep. I liked this. It was exciting waiting to see what you got. A life lesson from this is that you can make something into something better whether it is so good or bad.
The process of the pop print took some time. First of all you had to think of what you wanted to do. Then you had to sketch it on a little piece of paper. The next step was to trace it onto the actual stamp. After you had finished that you had to carve it. Finally you could make your pop print. To make it you had to put the paint onto the tray and use the roller and roll it. When the roller got paint onto it you rolled it onto your stamp. Them you placed the stamp onto paper and push on it. When you take the stamp off your print is there. The whole process of this I enjoyed. I chose a nike symbol. I didn't know what to do so I was thinking. When I looked down at my shoes I saw the nike symbol and decided to draw that. I really like the pop print art.
