Good to see it's on again! I think Kelly's blow is ready to upload, he was just waiting for the restart and your upload. Hopefully he will check back to see it's his turn...
Dawn, can I ask you what you wanted to express with your blow? It reminds me of my childhood, as I grew up in Hungary, and it was a communist country behind the iron curtain (not that bigoted like many other surrounding countries), but it still had the regime. Everything was full of their symbols, especially the wheat you sprayed on the city. . The way you arranged the white spray with the golden lines, REALLY reminds me of that. , not the style, but the components.

Alright glad to see this up and running!!!! Ok Pink, Do you want me to run the clock down or do you want me to post as soon as possible. I have been working on this blow for about 10 days.........no just kidding, to be honest I haven't even started on it. didn't want to be unfair. But I can get this done fairly quickly if needed. Let me know.

Kelly, go ahead and post whenever you're ready. I actually got an email from the HS teacher today asking where I am with this project.

I like it. I'm not a designer so can't crit in detail but I think it works well.

Whoo hoo Kelly, so far this is my favorite! It came out really nice! Love the advices you gave them! I don't think in this case you would need one focal point, so I think it's good if the eyes travel around, and they explore the whole stuff piece by piece. I would love to hear the kids' feedback!

I think it's nice, the longer you look at it the more you discover in it.

I'm afraid I didn't spend as much time on this round as I'd have liked...the weekend got away from me. By the way, the flower is a Trillium flower (thus the school name). Kelly, I really liked your statements - that's what inspired the quote. I wasn't sure what to do with the clover-type design. I'm sure that means something but this time I just didn't get any research time in.

Loving it...I am really gonna use that flower in my last blow.......not sure how yet but it will be in there.
Actually the whole design was about being your own person and doing it how you want to do it.....thinking out of the box ...the clover design was acually a representation of the preverbial box. every box is different so have the vision to see out side anything and take in the big picture.....
So sad that this will be my last blow on this battle...

Great blow Dawn! I give you some feedback, hope you don't mind it! If the trillium flower is important, don't put it under the text, because I wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't mentioned it was there, only after reading your comment I was looking for it. I think the main quote would look nicer justified. Ward's name and "think outside the box" are so low contrast that almost can't be read. I imagine it was on purpose, but a at least a little more contrast would be nice.
