Magazine Project

I started by making the layout and then I moved to filling in the information. I tried to make mine more kid friendly and easy to read. I added my pictures and text then submitted it more critique. After I received critique I change my magazine and got it printed off.


I started my layout by using my sketches as a guide but completely changed it in the end.


Critique Process: I Critiqued both Amy Tores and Meghan Luna. I received critique from Sister Van Sistine. She helped me a lot. She showed me how to unify my two pages show they flowed. She also reminded me of a few things that I had forgot. I was able to edit my poster and overall made it look better.

Magazine Spread Draft

So here is my first draft. I started of with looking over my sketches and putting those ideas into in design. From there I corrected my story and added it to my magazine spread. I moved it around and changed the fonts. I still feel like something is missing. I will keep working on it though.  I was planning on doing something young adult themed, but I changed it to a child based magazine spread.

Web Page Design



Process: The first thing that I did for my project was make my sketch. While making my sketch I had to look up which contraries the Alps go through. I also had to come up with a name for my fake website. I decided on Alphound because people that love skiing tend to be called “Ski Hounds.” After making the sketch I made my layout. My layout turned out different then my actual  sketch, because I changed my mind on a couple different things. After that I placed my content and information and my logo. After receiving some critique I made my website more like my original sketch.

Critique Process:  I gave critique to both Taylor Niu and Dawn Paul. I personal received great critique from both Sister Rockwood and Sister Van Sistine. They helped me a lot. Sister Rockwood pointed out somethings that I need to fix such as my spelling. Opps. Sister Van Sistine told me a lot about how I can make my project look better with alignment. They both told me to make my title larger so I did. I got a lot of good feed back which help me to make the best of my project.

Movie Poster Project


Message/ Audience: My message was to make poster seem funny and exciting. My poster was made to be like a romantic comedy movie. I included my explanation of what the movie is about at the bottom of the poster. I used different small images to make the poster more detailed. My audience would be mainly my family and friends. I think think that through this poster they can see that I like to make things funny.

Critique Report: I critiqued Sister Bohn and Sister Alexander. I loved there posters.I recived good advice from Sister Rockwood and Sister Alexander as well as Sister Van Sistine. They told me to get rid of some of the space between the bottom my poster and my text. They also told me to make sure I used the movie poster text. Sister Van Sistine told me to that it look cluttered  at the told of my poster, so I moved the picture of the ring down to make it less cluttered.

9A Photographic Study Project

For this project I got my idea to use a statue of Joseph Smith reading the scriptures while studying in the living room of my home where the statue sits on top of a curio cabinet. I thought that the statue would be fun and show good detail through the pictures.
imageI love this picture because, it shows good detail on the statue as well as the rock it is on.

imageI like the lighting on this one, but I preferred the one in my project that similar to this one because it showed more detail.

imageI like this one because of the way that it focuses on his head and the rest is blurry.

Process: I began by selecting a subject and location. Using my Cannon Rebel T5, I positioned my subject in various situations at the location site and photographed it. I varied the position, lighting, angle and camera settings. Upon completion of the photo shoot, I used Lightroom to edit the images. I imported the edited images into Adobe Photoshop to create my project.

Critique: I posted my rough draft on the Facebook page for peer and teacher feedback. Jennifer Rockwood, Carol Enriquez, Keestan Willes, and Sister Van Sistine posted feedback. I took the critiques offered into consideration. Sister Van Sistine and Jennifer Rockwood reminded me to change my fonts and align my images. I took the opportunity to critique Bailey Alexander and Yurili Castillio. I encouraged them to use different focal points and clear text.

LFC Photography Activity

I have always enjoyed photography so I loved this assignment. I started by changing setting on my camera (cannon rebel t5). I did this over a two day time period most of them where taken at my school. To edit them I used light room. I was amazed and what I could do with only changing a few things. On the Lead Room photo I had my younger brother pose for me, when I edited it I was able to get rid of his acne and lighten up the photo. Overall this was a great learning experience.

Social Media Marketing Project

Company: Cuties

Objective: Make a info-graphic about why people should eat cutie Mandarin oranges. Have the info-graphic show why Cuties are good for the consumer and why people like them.

Strategy: Share on social media and make it stand out.


Process and Reasoning: My first step to my project was to figure out which project I wanted to do and which company. I decided to do Cuties because I think that they are healthy and delicious, and would make a great info-graphic.  I chose to use the colors orange, blue, and yellow to go with the cuties label. I put all of my text inside circles because the mandarin oranges are circles, and I think really tied it together.

Critique: I critiqued both Emily Paul and Jennifer Rockwood. I received good critique from Mary McAlister, Emily Paul, Sister Van Sistine and Jennifer Rockwood. I took their advice and I made the text more easy to read. I mage the circle better match the logo and I made it more easy to read.

Magazine Content and Sketches

For my magazine I am choosing to do a New Era article. I think that what my topic is will really relate to teenagers my age. For my magazine content, I shared a story from when I was younger.  I was face with decisions of  weather to listen to the Spirit or not. I talked about how sometimes its hard to make the right choice. I also mentioned about how if you do make the wrong choice, Heavenly Father will still love you. I think that its something that teenagers need to hear. They need to know that its never too late to make the right choice and that god always loves them.

Story: Never too Late

As a young child a friend, who was also a neighbor, and I were given permission to walk home from a church activity together. We were instructed by our parents to stay together and walk straight home.  At one point on our walk home a sister from our ward pulled over and asked if we wanted a ride. We responded by thanking her for the offer but preferred to walk home. We continued on our way. While walking past the neighborhood of a mutual friend, my walking companion thought that it would be great to stop and say and say “hello”. I reminded her of what our parents said. She was insistent that we should stop. Her persistence changed my mind and I said, “Ok, only for a second.”

I was nervous that we would get in trouble. When we got to the friend’s house, the Spirit kept telling me to go home. I reminded my friend that we needed to go home multiple times. A short time had passed and I insisted that we leave. Instead of agreeing with me and resuming our walk home, she made plans with other friend to walk over to, yet, another friend’s house in the opposite direction from our neighborhood. The Spirit once again prompted me to go home.

I made the choice to listen to the Spirit. I told my friend, “I am going to go home now.” We said goodbye to each other and separated. At this point I had done the two things that my parents asked me not to do: I did not go straight home and I did not stick with my friend. I was worried for her and myself. When I passed the home of the kind sister from my ward who earlier offered us a ride, the Spirit again came to me. I felt an overwhelming feeling that I needed to ask her if I could take her up on her offer after all and get a ride home. It was starting to get dark and, by foot, I was still far from home. It would have been dangerous for a child of my age to walk home alone, especially in the dark. I contemplated whether or not I should go ask for a ride.

I finally decided and went and knocked on her door. I asked her if I could get a ride home and she happily drove me home. When I got home I did not tell my parents what had happened and started getting ready for bed. Later in the evening my parents came to my room and asked if I knew where my friend was. Her parents called my parents and said that she was not home yet. I told my parents what happened and where I thought my friend had gone.

I felt sure my parents would be mad at me for not “sticking together” with my friend. It turned out that my parents were more proud of me than they were upset with me. They were happy that I made a good choice when my friend had not. My parents later got a call from the sister in our ward who drove me home. She told my parents what happened and how she was impressed with me to have to courage to ask for a ride and leave my friend. My friend made it home safely; however; she was punished.

I learned from this experience. I learned that sometimes it is hard to make the right choice. This lesson has been with me throughout my life. Some think that Heavenly Father does not ask much from us. Others may feel He asks too much. I believe the things that He does ask of us is for our benefits and for our salvation. The things my parents asked me to do that day were simple. They told me to stay with my friend and go straight home. To some people these instructions may seem like restrictions; however, they were intended for my benefit.

Sometimes we don’t listen to the things we are asked not to do, but there is always time to do the right thing. I strayed from what I was instructed to do; but, I still had the courage to do the right thing. Heavenly Father wants what’s best for us and is willing to help us. He helps us by sending the Holy Spirit as He did for me. If we listen to the Spirit we will be blessed. If I would have listened to the first warning, maybe my friend would not have ended up getting in trouble. Sometimes not listening to the Spirit it will affect those we are involved with.

Heavenly Father loves us. Jeffrey R. Holland said in a General Conference talk in April of 2012, “However many mistakes you feel you have made or talents you think you don’t have, or however far from home and family and God you feel you have traveled, I testify that you have not traveled beyond the reach of divine love.” No matter what we do or say, God still loves and is proud of us, just like my parents. God will be happier when you come home to Him safely than He will be disappointed that you did not always listen to His instructions.

Speaker’s Outline

Discovering the Divinity Within

  1. We serve
  • Divine nature gives us a desire to serve.
  • Heavenly father will give us strength to serve.
  1. We know why
  • “The divine nature within each one of us is refined and magnified by the effort we make to draw nearer to our Father and His Son.”
  1. We are loved
  • We understand divine nature when we feel god’s love.
  • We understand how god feels about us and that we are hid children.
  1. We Learn
  • God wants us to learn eternal truths.
  1. We draw closer to god
  • We understand our purpose on earth
  • Serving others is serving god.


My first step was to figure out which talk I would use for my PowerPoint. I decided on a talk by Sister Rosemary Wixom called,”Discovering the Divinity Within.” After that I made my speakers outline and sketch. While making my first draft I focused too much on my color scheme. This took away from the design. On my final draft I focused a lot on the design which made it look more clean cut. img_2395

Critique Report

Gave critique to a few people from the Facebook page. I received great critique from Sister Van Sistine. She told me that I should tie my pictures more together, because my pictures where both objects and people. I changed it to be all people. Then I did as advised, and change my font. I added new design element that tied all of the slides together.
