Hooray, first text art project!

Dig Deeper:

For this project I created a Pinterest board and found a bunch of cool things that were related to Text Art. 

Two Challenges:

I liked how a lot of the art pieces I found created words out of iconic symbols/letters so I made my own! It incorporates a lot of websites we see and use "today".

I also really liked a lot of the blackout poems and I had never made one before so I found a cool page on space and had fun with that.

Where I'm at: 

I like how a lot of text art pieces incorporate layers and I really like the idea of using newspaper. I also really like books and those are similar to newspapers so I went off of that idea. For my final project I decided to make the characters from Winnie the Pooh (one of my favorite books) morph out of the pages of the book. Right now I am making the characters out of Sculpey and "paper mache-ing" words from the book onto their bodies.
