Visual Assignment: Find Yourself

After I finished this I realized that I actually already had over 10 stars, but oh well, here it is. I got a little overexcited I guess!

I wanted to do this one because I’ve always loved patching together words using different letters. I had fun wandering around my house with my sister (I am home for the weekend) picking up books and magazines and searching for my name.

Putting it together was a little frustrating, I’m still trying to get the hang of GIMP. It seems to defy me even on simple tasks like cutting and pasting a few images together….I got so annoyed I just went into PowerPoint to put it together.

Sources of each letter –

C: from a Triscuit box

H: Drawn on the chalkboard by our laundry room

R: From the Metro section of the Washington Post

I: From the DVD cover of Indiana Jones (one of my favorite movies!)

S: From one of our horse magazines, Practical Horseman

T: From a book my sister is reading, Things Fall Apart

I: From the DVD cover of the movie Ice Age – Scrat is so funny

E: from the medal that my sister won at the Junior Olympics two years ago, which says FEI on it (International Equestrian Federation)

    That’s great that you made it yourself from real materials, more meaningful… so I am not going to tell you about this site
