Project Description

Students will be asked to source an image from one of the resources or utilize one of their own. Create at least 1 text and 1 object layer. Then utilizing the layer masking techniques in the lessons, mask portions of the layers to create depth and have the objects and text appear as though they are layered on different areas of the images. 

Students will upload their final products to the gallery and should include the original image, the final image, and a description talking about why they chose the image, the text and the layout and masking.
