For the first scanning day I brought a book called “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, a piece of blue fabric, a white mesh bag, and a pink piece of silicone. I’m thinking for my final collage I want to have a lot of different textures within the piece with probably quite a bit of different sayings or drawings from books and old papers I have lying around.

Having a lot of texture within a collage is what makes it interesting to me as a viewer, and I want to try to recreate this within my design. Having something to look at and being able to actually visualize it in more way than one way is key to a good design. I also think scanning different sayings and quotes from books will help add another aspect of connectedness between me and my viewers. The following is a quote from “The Secret” that I particularly liked and thought it might fit well into this project for the digital collage.

For my second scan I chose a fabric that I might not particularly use within the final project, but wanted to just test out how a piece of flat fabric compared to scrunched up fabric might look on the scanner. I liked how the design was clearly shown and how you can clearly see the texture. However, for my final project I think using a textured fabric scrunched up might give it a better flow with the design layout I have thought up.

As you can see, the fabric is interesting for the viewer, but just might not flow well with different quotes from the book I’ve chosen. I might do a plain fabric with no design but with a lot of interesting textures and find a way to layer it well in Photoshop.
