Drug Free Forever!
Wow I had so much fun with this!
It sure was a lot of work though. I hope you enjoy it!!
These pictures are straight out of the camera except for the second close up one, I had to burn the logo in GIMP to make it stand out more. I was using a home-made macro lens that didn't work too well, but the stars were just so tiny, I had to. No other editing was done. The pictures were put together in a collage using Picnik.
Soooo, how does this symbolize me?
Each star is as long as a grain of rice and about as big as my pinky fingernail. It shows that I put a lot of hard work into everything I do, no matter how small. I have a lot of patience and work past my frustration to get the best product that I can.
The Above the Influence arrow in the middle is made up of 42 stars, which is my lucky number.
There are two light blue stars, one at the very top of the circle, one at the very bottom. (The second picture in the collage is a close-up of one.) Light blue is my favorite color. The two stars indicate my 2 years on deviantART that have helped improve my passion for photography. These two stars also have the Above the Influence arrow on them, symbolizing how I've never taken drugs from the very beginning of my life (at the bottom of the circle) and how I never will (at the top.)
The rainbow colors of the arrow represent how organized I am. The stars also include my favorite colors, blue, green, and purple. They also represent how indecisive I can be sometimes!
I absolutely love paper star making. It is very fun, and also extremely calming; I sometimes meditate while making them. The calm pastel colors symbolize that, as well as the paper stars themselves!
This also represents my love for photography and nature. I used completely natural light and recycled paper for the background. I spent hours taking pictures and trying to get the best angles. It was a blast!
