I didn't really care for this project because it didn't interest me much I didn't like the idea of letting someone else finish something I started or me finishing someones work even though i might not understand what they were trying to do with their collage. so when i started my first collage i just put random stuff on it not caring really on the second collage I understood what they were trying to do so I just continued it .but on the third and final one I didn't know what to add to it because it looked good the way it was so i just put one thing on it in the spot i didn't like and called it a day .and my life lesson to this whole thing was that you learn that you cant always control the out come of something you started .

At first when I was given this project I didn't know what to do with but after awhile of me thinking of what my fortune saying "good news will come to you from far away" and so thought of different ways of how to get letters from far away like in older times and newer times.so when i got to class the next day I just started to draw what was on the fortune I even drew the chines symbols and their meanings and after that i drew ways of getting messages from far away the one I like the most was the map of a small kingdom to another and behind it was a map of the seas and on top of all that was a letter and compass .and when I was done I felt like it was empty but I didn't know what else to put in the drawing so this is what I ended up with.
first thing I had to do to make this stamp is choose something blue so I chose a ying yang book mark and a blue poker chip.the poker chip was just something extra but the book mark was because I wanted to carve out the design it had .so after that I had to draw the ying yang design and poker chip on a small piece of paper with a dark pencil then I had to press the drawing on to the stamp retrace it on the stamp to make it clearer then I could carve it out .my over all reaction to the printing of my stamp was happy with my self but I couldnt do what I wanted to because of complicated the inside was but besides that I was pretty happy with it.
