Goodbye blog

Hello People!

Well, as you know by now, it is the end of the school year here for us in Canada. In a few short days I will be leaving grade 7 in elementary school for grade 8 in high school.

It has been an amazing year, and I have learned how to write on a blog for other people to see. Over the past few months, I have not been editing or giving any more posts, and I have discontinued Lost. I am sorry to say, I will not be writing on this blog anymore.

 

*Eruptions of sadness and sobs from all across the universe*

I know. I know how sad you will all be, but I simply have lost the interest.I have found more fun in other things, and so I don’t have the time or mindset to continue.

Maybe I might make a new post every once in a while, maybe when I am going into another grade. After all, I will graduate high school in five years…

Anyways, I just wanted to thank anyone and everyone who visited my blog. I would also like to thank Ms. Smith (aka Queen of The Universe) for showing me how to make a blog.

I have had so much fun, and I wish good luck to the grade 7’s next year! Forever will I yell Huzzah!

Me and My Shadow

January27

Hello People!

Autumn me and my shadow blured face.2

Question(s) of the day! What do you think of my art? What would your shadow be doing in your art?

 

*Imagine hearing this in an intense narrator voice!*

As you walk on the sidewalk along the old creepy dark ally way, the light illuminating from across the street with every step you take. Beside you, you become alarmed of the shadowy figure walking with you. You start to run, but they follow you exactly. This is when you realize that this figure is……… YOUR SHADOW!!!!

 

Well hello everyone! I hoped you guys liked the AWESOME intro =D I have been working in class on an art project called me and my shadow! Hence, the title for the blog!

With this project, we needed to take a picture of ourselves and create a shadow in the picture what you love or want to do when you are older!
I chose to make my shadow holding a book, while having spray paint saying best selling author. I honestly really hope to be noticed by a corporation so I can publish any of my stories that I write. Ever since I was really little, I have always wanted to become a really well known author of a huge story!

As you know, with the story I had written on my blog (which is now on wattpad) I have a creative style and imagination for writing.

“But Autumn! How do we make this fabulous creation that is beauty that you have bestowed on us?” I here you saying your computer. Well, being the kind person I am (wink wink) I have made a list of how to create this fine piece of art at your own home!

  1. Get someone to take a picture of you doing a pose. the pose you choose could resemble what the shadow will be doing, or it can be what ever you want.
  2. After you have an image of yourself, cut it out. Draw a line across the page about 10 cm from the bottom.
  3. When your line had been drawn at a point where you prefer it, glue your figure below the line. The line itself is where the floor and the wall behind you meet. Your shadow will be the one standing on the line.
  4. Draw the outline of your shadow lightly, because if you make a mistake, you can erase it. Once you have come to the point where you are happy with the design of the pose your shadow is, color it with a dark color or pencil. Make sure that all of the shading of the black or grey you are using, not all different hues. You don’t want to see any of the outlines of the shadow.
  5. Once you have completely shaded or colored your shadow, use a ruler to connect the feet of your picture and your shadow. Make sure the lines are straight, and as they reach the shadow, you can make them a tiny bit smaller then what you have on the photo’s feet.
  6. Create a background. You can make a background of your drawing to make a setting. But make sure that what you are “standing” in front of is a flat wall. Shadows don’t form right if there are weird bumps, or if it is on an open setting.
  7. Sign your name at the bottom in a cool fashion! All major artists sign their names at the bottom, so make a cool logo for yours!

I chose the background of an old brick building because of the complexity to them. I love the look of old objects or settings, and I wanted to place spray paint in the drawing. I wanted to make an effort to do something different to tell the onlooker what the shadow was, while at the same time make it work with the surrounding.
I know that you can probably go to an old brick wall in an old ally way, and most likely at one point or another you will find graffiti. I wanted to use street art to make an awesome impact!

I never want to have a favorite part of any of my art, because I don’t think that I should boast and brag. But honestly, I don’t have a favorite part. I love the graffiti and I worked hard on it, even though it may not look like the real thing. I love the artistic value in all of my work, and although that sounds really “artsy” it’s not,

I love the idea and characteristics of my art, and I had fun making this one!

Happy 50th Charlie Brown!

Charlie Brown Christmas Charlie and LinusCreative Commons License John Flannery via Compfight

 

Hello People!

For fifty years this iconic pop-cultural young man has been in comics and Holiday specials, and is known all through North America! Charlie Brown’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” Aired in 1965, and the peanuts classic has been easily recognizable for all this time, and has been loved by the children who first saw the film!
Through the love of Christmas, I brought in a copy to my class and we watched the film. We saw how the animators worked with the technology to create a moving picture across the screen, and we took a closer look at the movie. We were introduced to a sheet with a series of questions we needed to answer. We would answer along, and we would really think about the questions. I am writing about one of the questions and what they mean,  how I connect and how the story writers and workers of the film made the peanuts cast.\

My question that I am choosing is “Why does Linus Quote the Bible?” In the animated film, Linus (Charlie Brown’s best bud) quotes the bible in the school auditorium, and explains what Christmas is all about. I am not extremely religious, but I do know why Linus quoted. Charlie Brown asked if anyone knew the real meaning of Christmas, which meant Charlie was saying that he thought that Christmas had become to commercial. In a way, Christmas today has, with all the gifts under the tree and the money we spend when not only a century ago we were having smaller items for gifts and there were less. Linus quotes the bible to show that he knows the true meaning, and that little tree only needs some love and it will grow. Humanity didn’t have a lot not long ago, and discrimination against woman and others with different colored skin was everywhere, but now we have money to spend on presents and gifts to see your child smile at all of the wrapped toys but, only to find next year that there wasn’t as much.

The true meaning of Christmas is family, peace and love. To hold your loved ones together and to share your big dinner around the table, it is just a privilege to be with them when any day could be your last or their last, or you might not have enough to have a belly filling dinner. Life is celebrated on Christmas, and we celebrate beauty and happiness and how you show it. Linus quoted the bible not for only those who were religious, but the animators intentionally added the quote for all religions for all without. Everyone can understand that any holiday is to be spent with your loved ones and the quote told that in a child’s cartoon for them all to think about. To thinks about after watching the movie and what happened in it, and what there is more to Christmas then the price tags under the tree.

Top 5 best movies around the Holidays!

Charlie Brown Christmas Charlie Has HopeCreative Commons License John Flannery via Compfight

Question(s) of the day: What is your favorite childhood Christmas movie?

 

I love Christmas, it is probably my most favorite time of year! I have made a list of my top five most favorite movies to watch during the Holidays! They may not all be Holiday movies, but my family and I watch them non the less! Inside, I will always be a child and these are some of the best!

5. Charlie Brown Christmas! 3+
My teacher (Ms. Smith) and my grandmother both love this movie, and so do I. This 1960’s classic talks about the true meaning of Christmas, and it is definitely a good choice for the Holidays.

4. Home Alone: 1 and 2! 10+
I loved these movies! They were the best out of the series, and I actually don’t like the others. My family and I will sit down near Christmas and watch Home Alone because of the funny content, and the heart warming learning of Kevin. Also because of the fact that this would never actually happen!

3. Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch who stole Christmas
Original! 4+
I saw this with my grandmother as well, and I have seen it during the holidays ever since! I love this movie and it deserves to be on this list.

2. Frosty the Snowman (original)! 3+
Another fun kids classic, I remember watching this with my brother and sister. We would sit in front of the TV with our little foam chairs and watch it over and over!

1.Christmas Vacation! 14+
I love this movie, all though there are some iffy parts. My family and I watch it all the time, and it has been a tradition since my dad was a kid. This movie really quite funny and entertaining to watch, and my parents make silly jokes and quote it around the holidays.

Thanks for reading and comment down below in what I could have added or what your favorite movie is! If you agree with my choices, also comment!

Christmas Traditions!

Question(s) of the Day!
What are some of your family traditions? Do you do some of mine too?

The countdown has started!
Ah, Christmas, that jolly time of year for the smell of cinnamon, the taste of Eggnog with cookies and seeing all of the pretty ornaments on the Christmas tree! I have many family traditions, maybe you do too!

Christmas Lights!
One of my favorite family traditions for Christmas is going out and looking at all of the lights! I know I have said this before, but is really fun! I get to see all of the creativity in town through the colorful display for others! We jump into our vehicle with our coziest PJ’s, my mom turns on the music and we run by Tim Horton’s to but some hot chocolate and donuts, and we go all around. Through the displays we get joy from looking at them, and it brings our family closer together!

Christmas Village!
Another family tradition I generally do with my mother, my sister and my brother is set up the Christmas Village. We have a seating area that has a window that looks out onto the road, and we place down white sheets and a fuzzy felt with glitter to make the snow! We have shops, a fire house, a school, a mirror for a lake, a pathway and the residents. We set it in front of the window, and we need to keep the dog away so he won’t eat it. We then put electrical tape on the windows and and spray spray snow to make the effect of old fashioned windows. When we light up the village, and we turn off the lights it is so really quite beautiful!

Decorating the Christmas Tree!
Now, I know that pretty much everyone who celebrates Christmas decorates a Christmas tree, whether it be a real of fake one! Every year with my family and my grandparents head up to Nanimo, and we get a REAL Christmas tree from GoGo’s. We always get a tree from there, and my grandparents too. Each family (since we live in different houses) get’s there own tree! It is a fun family outing and the start to a fun December month!
When my parents, my siblings and I get home we decorate the Christmas tree we picked out we set it in the living room. My sister and brother always name the tree “Bob” or “Chuby” or “Charles”. I think this year it might be “Moreese”, but when we decorate we put the lights on first, proceeded by the garland. This is when the fun begins! As we put on the decorations we see all of the memories and we reflect on them! We might eat a cookie or two, but once the tree is done we turn off the overhead lights and we watch the magic light up the tree!

These are some of my family traditions! Thanks and comment don below! I recommend these outings because your family will love them!

Hello!

I am a part of what is know as the Student Blogging Challenge! This is where students such as I, work on our blogs and complete challenges every week by Ms Wyatt .

We can connect with other students who are working on the challenge too! Here are some awesome blogs by some awesome students.

  1. Avery’s Blog, Avery has captured a very creative and calming page with pink all around. I commented on her about me page because it gave me a lot of information to understand who Avery is. I suggest highly to visit her blog.

Dear Avery,
I love your about me page, and the theme is beautiful. It shows what I am interpreting as your personalty.
I am a big art lover as well. I draw anime (or manga) all the time and I like doing interior design. I love cat’s so I can connect with you on that :)
I know how hard it can be to a new school, but as long as you are social and don’t outcast yourself, you can make friends easily.
Again I really like your calming and beautiful page, the creative banner at the top, as well as the pink theme.
Thanks,
-Autumn :)

I absolutely love Doctor Who. I am such a big fan girl it is unhealthy. I am torn between Matt Smith and David Tennant for my favorite Doctors. Have you seen the new Doctor Who eps. with Peter Capaldi? They are every Saturday if not.
I love writing dark poems, short novels etc. There are poems that I post on my blog.
I love the movies of Alice in Wonderland. I still have a VCR with the tape of Alice in wonderland (I have a device from before the DVD players, even though I am 12)
Thanks for reading my comment,
