Mixed Media

1. How did you show amusement and variety in your piece? Explain your choice of subject matter and how you created a unified piece of art.
 I showed amusement by showing a dog having a dream about a large thanksgiving meal and wanting to steal the turkey. And I was able to show variety by adding multiple colors and different shaped pictures throughout my dogs dream.
2. Describe your experience with using mixed media. What mixed media did you use for your piece? 
 Using mixed media was much more challenging then I had first anticipated, the placement of all the pieces and what pieces that should have been used in each design. I used magazine clippings, clip art, pictures, pencil, and colored pencil for my mixed media.
3. What role did our lessons on visual journal play in the success of your piece? Explain.
 For our lessons in visual journal they helped me with gaining the knowledge of what materials were open to me and which ones looked more well suited with each other.
4. Discuss any challenges you experienced and how you overcame obstacles.
My biggest challenge was probably the gel medium and tissue paper because the color would smear and it could peal off when it dried. I overcame this by blending the colors of the tissue paper that best went together, and being more effective with the gel amount that I used.
