Prompt: Explain how you developed your design for your book carving. How important was it to have a clear plan before starting? What were the challenges you faced when working on this project? Explain how you overcame them. Discuss your design and how it relates to the book you chose (if that was the case, if not just discuss design). Did you take any risks? How and why? Describe how you felt about the overall project and if you felt it was successful.
I developed my design by just thinking of things I love, which are jungle animals and palm trees. I decided I wanted to combine them into one piece. Having a clear plan before I started was very important so my book carving would come together as one piece once I was finished. Challenges I faced was the tedious amount of work it took to carve out very intricate pieces. I overcame them by working slow and using a steady hand. I created a jungle scene with a giraffe, elephant, and a palm tree. I love how my project turned out because it is simple, yet interesting at the same time.
