First Project

        For my first project I wanted to incorporate some old posters (that were made into postcards) into an art piece. 

Link to postcard website:

        I have been collecting the postcards from places that I have traveled and more. I also wanted to make an model airplane because ever since I was little I wanted to be an aerospace engener and I have always been fascinated by planes. After some brainstorming I came up with an idea to make a collage using the postcards and paste it on the plane. Designing the plane was easy and the material I used for it was a foam bored. 

        When in came to making a collage for the pictures I did not want to cut up the postcards that I have collected so instead I made some of my own versions of them. I used pictures that I took from trips that I made then made them look similar to the old posters. 
Here is one of the postcards that I designed on Photoshop

Making postcard on Photoshops

        Ms. Patel helped me a lot with printing out the photos onto photo paper. I am still working on putting the photos onto the plane itself. Cutting the pictures and filling up all the spaces is difficult and I am also wondering if I have enough pictures to fill in all the free space.
