***AMATE PAPER CUT –

FIRST: Glue to white paper. Cut white paper down a bit(use ruler so it’s straight!) Center the white paper on the brown paper. You might want to cut the Brown paper down as well. Here is an example:

Your outside layer is Dark Brown…and you can show much more of that dark brown….it depends on the size & shape of your cut paper.

SECOND: Reflection questions in speaker notes.***

1.Content: Do you feel the image youcreated is s a good one for this project? Why or why not?
2. Composition: How well did you use the space OVERALL, and in the INTERIOR of your figure
3. TECHNICAL: The process. How well did you cut/glue. Do you have a clean overall presentation?
