This project not only reflect my own ideas, but also that of my peers, who collaborated and gave constructive feedback while i made the card. Emma helped show me that I was solely exploring the crape paper media on the card. She brought over some wrapping paper and reminded me how we had learned to make origami butterflies in Art 1. Not only did this liven up my card, but it also gave it a 3D aspect. I also discussed with her the idea of putting glitter on the front, on top of the solid boring layer of black paint i had applied. when i was finished with the card, I was holding it and considering how I would hand it over to my friend. Sabrina suggested that I should attach a ribbon on the top, so that my friend could hold it less awkwardly, and even hang it up.
For this project my source of inspiration, was from cards i had seen on Pinterest. these cards had cut out letters from the magazine spell out "Happy Birthday". I decided to take this a step further, and customize it more I also wanted the card to have more mixed media on it. since my friend always has an awesome sense of humor, I also chose funny pictures and jokes that would make her laugh.
