1. What where some of your ideas for Layers? 
Well I think basically for a change, I had a ton of ideas for this one. I started with this idea to do a print over and over again with words and stuff in the background. It would be a print of Plexiglas  and I even cut into the Plexiglas and everything. And then you like, put ink on it and wipe off all the stuff that's extra. But then I forgot how to do it, so I had to change.
I know I had another idea before this but I don't remember it, and I'm not good at like writing it down and stuff so....

2. Layering has several meanings. Some view it as the bottom layer having no more valuable than the top. What is your interpretation of Layering and how did you show Layering in your project? 

The layering project I did was mostly like layering colors over each other and it was in the same shape so it was a little repetitive and that added more to the Layering  I think. It was just layers on top of layers, but only overlapping a little, to show layers.

3. What medium did you decide to use and why did you choose this medium over the others? 
I used like heavy paper, like mat board and then magazine cutouts. I really like cutting out of magazines and there's so many different color choices in magazines of different colors and textures so that's why I chose it- to add like, variety.
4. What issues did you have creating this work? We encourage risk taking in art. Risk taking can be as simple as trying a new technique or learning about a new medium to as complex as trying something totally new. What risks did you take creating this project? 
The first issue was what to do- and I guess that was my risk too. The fact that I couldn't do it because it was such a risk that I couldn't remember how to do it so I think that's very risky actually. 
5. Of the 5 characteristics of great art (technique, concept, emotion, new, medium) which did you include in your art?
I like medium for this. The more I look at it, the more I like the way that the colors in the raindrops look. It took forever to organize them all by color and shade and whatnot  and I think it adds to the layered look it has. There was some magazine cutouts in other people's art, but none quite like this and so I like that.
