Color Theory Class- Monochromatic color mixing

For this assignment, we had to create a drawing on small size paper (5 x 8) four times and then paint them four different ways. I chose to draw from a photograph I took in Seattle of calders sculpture with the seattle needle peeking through.
One painting used all 12 values of the color and the other paintings used only half the values.
See if you can guess which painting was the darker shades, which was the lightest tints and which painting used the values in the middle. We discussed how each painting gave a different mood and which painting we liked the best.

Making a Book Club Journal

This was a journal I made for my mom's bday. It was covered with paper that I silkscreened onto heavy art paper. The stitch I used was a coptic binding. I photocopied pages that had lines for authors name, book, and comments. My mom belongs to several book clubs and I have one and it is handy to remember all the books Ive read.
Below is the inside spread that I used stickers to spell Book club record.
