This week in my art class, we decided to create a class collection of everything that is blue. I took a screenshot of this section of our collection. There is a Victoria's Secret shimmer body mist, ballpoint pens, a blueberry scented marker, a snakeskin belt, and many other blue objects. We based our sculpture off of the artist Portia Munson, who creates sculptures of objects that are all the same hue and translates that into art. I don't believe our collection has anything to do with the time we live in, perhaps except for the perfumes. Everyone brought mostly household items, but some brought more personal items that shows their interests. The majority of the collection doesn't show the class' interests however. The group collection does not reflect my personal tastes because I love lavish items and Windex® window cleaning spray is definitely not my forte ;). Here is a picture of Portia Munson's work. Enjoy!

Part of my life as a teenager is dedicated to collections of mine. I collect many different things including Victoria's Secret fragrance mists, couture perfume bottles, Disney Vinylmation figurines, Disney character pins, Essie nail polish, and blingy bracelets. However, the biggest collection I have is a whopping 124 lip glosses by Philosophy cosmetics. I have so many different flavors. Some of my favorites are Full of Fortune Cookie, Sugar Plum Frost, Maple Glazed Cakes, Blue Hawaiian, and Sugary Cinnamon Icing. Many people will look at me like I have a yam puree dish sprouting from my head! LOL. But some find my collections and interests very appealing. And I love it. When I can share my love of scents and Hobbies with others, it makes me feel very good inside because they find me interesting, bubbly, and full of spunk. I collect many things because not only does it make me happy, sometimes my friends and family are happy when they see my collections. It is also really fun and I get to live colorfully! :)
