On the first day of the CDCS, I brought a sticker, a polaroid picture, and a piece of fabric. After I left the class, I decided that those weren’t the best things to use for this project. When I got back to my room, I decided that I should change it up and pick other things for the collage. But the one thing that I really want to add into the collage are items that have different types of textures. It could be from a hair scrunchie, edge of a quarter, to a crinkled piece of homework.
I decided to pick my Washington State University scrunchie that I made for a part of my collage because of the texture. I wanted to add some texture effects to the collage to make it more realistic for the reader. I thought if I added texture to the collage it would add more of a realistic feeling for the reader by looking at the wrinkles in the fabric, you could some what imagine the texture of the scrunchie. I tried multiple times to try and get the blank circle in the middle of the scrunchie as big as I could, so in the future I could try and find something to put in the middle of the scrunchie.
In addition to the scrunchie, I have no idea what I’ll be digitizing. At the moment, I’m trying to figure out what kind of message I’m trying to get out of for the collage. I have different things that I want to work into the collage, but I have no idea how I’m going to do that. I have an idea for the collage to make it something like “What you would find in a college students dorm room” or “What you would find in a college students backpack”.
