Recently I have been on the search for a career. One of the biggest must “know’s” is Photoshop and Illustrator. It has been a while since I practiced these programs. Thank goodness my husband is a pro at these programs because otherwise I would have been totally lost. I knew I wanted to do some type of fun enchanted dreamland collage. I first sketched out my ideas and then searched the web for photos that worked best with my vision. I was actually quite pleased with the results.
I created this logo for my personal inspiration blog STYLE BANDWAGON. This collage represents who I am… free-spirited and imaginative.
So for my project in Art 156 I decided to go in a different direction. It was suggested that I come up with a more sophisticated final project by the professor. So instead of looking at this project through the eyes of a merchandiser I decided to look through the eyes of an artistt.
For my Final Project I am going to tie dye a large square canvas. The colors that I have chosen were influenced by the Universe, the earth, the ocean, and the sunset. In the center of the canvas there will be a yellow pyramid. The pyramid is a symbol for the integration of self-and soul. The base of the pyramid represents the body, the sides represent the spiritual attempts, and the pointed top symbolises the harmonious union of the human with the ‘higher self-‘ (God). The color of the pyramid will be yellow representing the sun. The sun is a symbol of the giver of life. It represents our conscious mind, our will to live and our creative life force. In the center of the pyramid I will stencil The Flower of Life. I found a video on youtube to help me create the stencil. I hope to integrate to other methods a well in order to give my project a professional finish. I want to stretch the canvas over a wooden frame and give it a glossy finish using these tutorials:
