Book Carving

Explain how you developed your design for your book carving.
My design was developed by the questionable theme and how faeries and the air around is still a mystery to most and always has been.
 How important was it to have a clear plan before starting?
You had to have a clear plan because once you started carving there really was no going back you couldn't start over again, because you really didn't have much time.
 What were the challenges you faced when working on this project? 
How deep you needed to carve was very challenging because if you went to deep or shallow then the carving might look very unproportional.
Explain how you overcame them. 
I made sure that I counted out the pages I needed and had the correct depth that was necessary because I really couldn't afford to start over.
Discuss your design. My design was to have a faerie in a hidden cave with a secret water fall and she was gaining power from and connecting with nature through branches of light that floated around the cave.
 Did you take any risks? How and why?
I took a risk by my design because the way that I made my project cut off some of my images and hurt the painting I think.

 Describe how you felt about the overall project and if you felt it was successful. 
With my overall design I kind of feel like I could have done more with the book, that I could have utilized my time better and created a more solid design and painting. But it doesn't look that bad so I guess it was okay.
