Reflection post

So this is the end for this year.. After all the fun projects we did in art class for example our self portraits  which I really enjoyed doing and I loved the way it turned out, it is a bit sad that it is already over so soon. It was different then What I was used to doing this year then all of the years before but I really liked it. Another project I liked doing was the art by three which was fun and also maybe a bit frustrating haha
At the end i guess I just liked being able to express myself with all of the work I have done this year.

Time capsule

After 20 years of waiting and then kind of slowly forgetting about it I found my time capsule in my parents house after going through all of my old stuff. I remember asking my friends to write me letters so I could read them as my future self, but I will get to them later. The next thing I see after opening the box is my lacrosse team picture. I start having flashbacks on the great things we used to do together, like our amazing pasta parties or the fact that every practice was just so much fun and every single person was just such a huge part of the team all together. Also what I found was my a gift that my mom gave to me for Christmas it was a little hanging piece of art made of glass and it had love spelled out. 
The outside of my time capsule is basically pictures of my adventures I made during junior year which made me the person I am now I guess you could say. So back to the letters they are from a couple of my close friends I made and I am hoping that they will make me laugh..

Best friend

Ever since I had left my hometown/country it has been really hard for me not to miss my family and friends. It was especially hard having to say goodbye to my best friend Chrissi. Chrissi and I know each other and understand each other on a way some people might not even understand. We could look at each other and know excactly what the other one of us is trying to express. 
I was always a bit more out there than Chrissi, she would sometimes be redicliously shy to the point where I had to make phone calls for her. I tried helping her love herself more and I think it did help. 
The day of my flight was very emotional, all of my friends came over and just started crying but for some reason I didn't. I just stood there and I guess you could say I felt bad because I didn't cry, but the second I was in the car waving goodbye to my friends I couldn't stop. 
Chrissi and I talk almost everyday and stay in touch all the time. She keeps telling me stories about how she handles stuff and difficult situations and from what I have heard she has been changing in such a great and wonderful way. She started talking to new people and being open about more things. And I can also see that she really loves herself now.

Art times three

I really enjoyed doing this project because you never knew what would happen. We all had to start off making a collage about celeberties. After two days working on it we had to pass it on to the next person and after another 2 days we passed it on and that was when we got our final piece. I wasn't really liking my final piece so I had to change it up a lot until i finished and now I really enjoy looking at it.

Fortune cookie inspired book page

I am still in the process of making my fortune cookie painting/collage. I guess I decided to make it this way because it represents all the people that care for or believe in fortune and those who just want to be left alone with that kind of stuff

Pop print- I chose to make a my new schools "logo" since this project was during our spirit week

Candy Drawing

My classmates and I have been working on this project for a couple of weeks. We had to work on paper which we already had worked with (as you can tell i used a certain bubble technique).
