Q4 Art Projects: Bailey Collins

During this quarter I decided to teach myself something new. I taught myself how to make my photos paste onto tiles. I still have plans to arrange them together, but I didn't have the materials needed to do that in time. I also taught myself how to do embroidery and I drew up the Morton Salt Girl because I think the design is really beautiful and interesting. I love how it came out too. I haven't entirely finished it, I am going to completely fill in the design at some point, and I am definitely going to continue with learning embroidery and cross stitch patterns. I was able to show it to my grandma and great aunt, they were so excited because embroidery is a family tradition on my father's side. All of my aunts and uncles, and my grandma have the embroidery designs framed and hung in their homes because my great grandma was a master embroiderer. My third project was about learning how to make terrariums. I made the scenes really cute and I love how they turned out. I am excited to make more and put in some cool plants. My fourth project was really fun because I learned that if I am really focused, I draw really well. I love how these tiles turned out. I think that they are really pretty and I love how I designed them, they are very zen like designs, with a twist of course.
Thank you for a wonderful four years in art class! I have consistently had you every year and I am very grateful to have known you so well.
