Process: To begin the art piece was to create the outline of an object, with the background having a collage on it and applying spray paint for a design. For my object I chose a bicycle and for my collage I chose bike trail maps. To start I first looked up images of bikes and chose the one that I thought looked the coolest and stood out, and then printed it out on an 11 x 14 sheet of paper. Then I cropped 2 poster boards to the 11 x 14 size, and began dividing up the printed photo and one of the posters into even squares 1 inch by 1 inch so that I could draw the image onto the poster according to the boxes. I first drew them on with a 2h pencil so that I could see the outline. My processs took slightly longer than others because my object had lots of detail and took longer to make sure that everything was perfect. Next I printed out over 5 images of bike trail maps using a colored printer and cut them into squares and mod podged them onto my 2nd poster board. After waiting a day to let the mod podge dry I then got a sheet of tracing paper, and traced the image of the bike from the original poster onto the tracing paper so that I could transfer it onto the back of my collaged poster. After that I got a exacto-knife and a cutting pad and began to cut the outline of the bike. Because my piece had so much detail I mandated to only cut out the pieces that stuck out. After this I would mod podge the outline of the bicycle onto my first original poster board after erasing all the pencil marks on the original board, and letting it dry for a day. Finally, for my spray paint design I decided to do the bicycle tire tracks, so I printed out multiple images of bike tracks and cut them out and placed them in a fancy matter onto my art piece that consisted of my bike outline on my original poster board, and spray painted it to my liking.
