What's my Fortune?
Fortune cookies have always been fun, but I never imagined making art out of them! A lot of my fortunes had to do with "doing my own thing" or "life is going well" or "soon you will receive..." It was all happy things. Also, when I think of Chinese food and such, I always think yellow and red, so that's what I did. I drew a simple, nice, and cheery drawing of flowers and layered it with yellow tissue and hidden inside all the fortunes and the Chinese symbols. I love the language of Chinese because it just looks so cool, so I included the symbols in it too. And finally, the whole picture is shinny symbolizing the bag the fortune cookies come in. I tried to make it as happy and cheery as possible!
