For this project we had to sketch a drawing in our sketchbook, then transfer it on to the piece of linoleum. After you did that you had to use the cutters to cut out the shapes into your animals and landscapes. Then we had to paint the linoleum with the ink until it is coated enough so it won't be spotty. The worst part was having to flip it and paste it on the paper because you couldn't really grip the linoleum that well. Finally after everything, we had to wash off all of the paint from the brush, the tray, and the linoleum which was annoying. The best part of the project was the end result when you finally got to see your work pay off.

The frog picture that we did in Photoshop was a lot more difficult than it looks, especially because we had to crop the picture then resize it. After that we had to fit it on the lips so I didn’t stick out and look weird. Then we had to apply the clone stamp item to the picture so that it would blend in good and not look Photoshopped. The easiest part of this project was the part where we had to erase the frog legs, because they were sticking out to much. Out of the 2 projects we did in Photoshop this was the best.
Last year in one of my classes we spent more than 9 weeks on just Photoshop, learning every single thing you could do and change in a picture. I didn’t realize how easy it is to forget how to use the different effects. Also how everything you do had to be so careful because, if you’re on the wrong layer or delete something you dint mean to it will take awhile to correct it. It also gets frustrating when you think you have something figured out then you realize that you made an error or it won’t let you do what you want. Overall Photoshop is a exiting tool to use.
