Unit 8 Lab

I don't know why, but I am completely in love with this project I made yesterday in design class. It's not one of the "big" ones or anything, we do some kind of lab every week. But they're usually sort of lame.  not useless, it's always to teach us something. This one was working with layers and blend modes. Usually we just randomly take pictures from the Internet (I got the brick walls from photobucket) but I absolutely hate using other people's pictures in my work. I just hate it. So I emailed this pic of me (that I took yesterday on my phone) to myself and downloaded it. I upsized it AND all the brick walls so they would print don't want to hear ALL the details but I LOVE that the bricks on me are a different size than the brick wall, and I totally love the graffiti font I found for the quote! I think I'm going to put this in my portfolio. 


  1. I was searching for your 'recipe' for fluid acrylics and can't believe how many posts I've missed. This is AWESOME!!!! I'm going to give this one a try. I agree I prefer my own photos, etc. The project them feels more like mine. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I love getting all your comments, they make me happy!!
