LOVE your colorful sea turtle painting, Maren. Wonderful how the turtle's back, with all those hearts like little windows, makes me think I can see into its soul. Love that you show it taking care of its little ones hatching in the sand. Wonderfully impressionistic! -- KarenHerseth

For this artwork, I decided to make a Mickey Mouse mask. I stated with an empty plastic bag. First I put some newspapers in a big plastic bag. I need to make sure that the bag is hard enough to paint later. After have a hard plastic bag with a lot of newspaper inside, I made my two Mickey ears by cardboard and tape it on the plastic bag. After that, it’s time to use newspaper strip with paste and put it all around the Mickey. The last step after the Mickey dry, I put couple colors on the art work. My favorite part of this artwork is painting because I love colors so much. Color is the thing to make artwork lively. The reason for me to create a Mickey is it is the one of the most fun cartoon characters in my heart. We practiced the colors contrast. I learned to use the contrast color to make the artwork looks nice. I like this artwork a lot because the turned out nice.

While creating my mask, I learned to make a variety of patterns with paints, like using the back of a paintbrush to create dots. It's really cool to see all the patterns that can be made with just a brush and paint.One thing that surprised me about this project was how it turned out. I really like the finished mask and will definitely hang it up when I take it home at the end of the year.

To create my mask, I first needed a form. I filled a plastic bag with newspaper, then I covered the whole thing with a few layers of paper mâché. After this, I pulled put the newspaper and was able to start painting. I decided to paint the entire mask orange, then I added details with blue (a complementary color), purple, white, and black. I used paint to make a variety of patterns, like dots and lines. My favorite part of this project was painting. Mixing colors together and adding little details really made the mask look so much better. My least favorite part was the paper mâché process. It was fun at first, but got to be a little boring by the end. To get inspiration for this mask, I looked online for pictures of masks. I really liked the masks with bright colors, which is why I painted the mask orange. As for the shape, I just went with what I thought looked right, and didn't really get inspiration from anything in particular. If I were to create the mask again, I might add more bright colors. I used a lot of blue, which looked really nice, but I think some bright colors would make it more interesting.
