I really enjoyed the visual project, even though I found it frustrating at times when my ideas weren't working out the way I thought they would. But ultimately, I'm happy that I ended up making an event poster because I think it was a good way to practice design elements, and I can see myself having to make one again in the future.
I found this project to be significantly more difficult than I anticipated. Though I feel that I fully fulfilled the requirements for the project, I certainly could have done more in terms of overall exploration of the software. I manipulated elements of the piece that I possessed general comprehension of, and missed out on a few opportunities to compose a more collectively dynamic piece.
This paragraph is an excerpt from my prose reflection:
I decided to turn in my project when I realized that it fit the baseline criteria. My only goal for this project was to become more familiar with GIMP, and I think I've succeeded in that regard. I feel more confident in manipulating images and quickly accessing the tools to change things.
