My favorite part about this project was when we had to color the back ground. My least favorite was the designs. When I did this project it surprise me how I colored this. This is how I made the project: First, I had a piece a paper and put a dot closes to the middle, Next I traced squares and rectangles, After that I drew lines to the dot from the shapes. When I was finish with that I start shading from darkest to lightest to make it look like its coming from space. When I finish with that I start putting designs in the shapes and start coloring the back ground. I learned about how to show space by using a vanishing point dot and drawing lines to connect edges of my shapes. I showed value by shading from light to dark. I showed line by using a lot of different designs in the boxes. I used shape by tracing the squares and rectangles. I used color by using colored pencils and markers to make it look interesting.

The goals of this project is to make a 3D cake. First I cut some card board out. Then I taped it then I pated the Clay-Crete down so it can spread then I waited up to one - two days so it can dry. Then I can paint it.The cake and it's frosting is all chocolate. I chose chocolate because my teacher gave me a idea of a all chocolate cake. No because I fast drying and easy to paint.

The goals of this project is to try to do a drawing of a cake in oil pastels. First I made a oval then to lines the same length then a coved line to make the bottom. then I found the center then made a triangle at the top and bottom and lines so that it will look like a slice has been cut out. Then I made a plate and a table. Then I made designs to go on the cake.The cake and it's frosting is all chocolate. I chose chocolate because my teacher gave me a idea of a all chocolate cake. Yes ,I thought this project was hard because I was using something more hard to use. If I could do this project over again I use the colors different.
