For this first project you will be using Pixlr, a online alternate to photoshop, to create a vintage cereal box cover. In my opinion one of the cool parts about the old boxes is that they are primarily made up of flat shapes and designs. You can either choose to recreate an old box or come up with a totally new cereal.
The catch is that you will be going around your current surroundings taking pictures of textures, colors, etc. to cut up and use as the base for the shapes. Below are an example of a few random textures I took pictures of. (maybe took 5 minutes).
Textures from around the house
