Putting It All Together…One Page at a Time

The excitement to complete my magazine is definitely starting to kick in! As much as I’m dreading the last day of class, I can’t believe how far along my magazine has come. I never knew I’d be able to make something that looks so professional. Today in class we had a “critique,” which is when we all gather around a table and present what we’ve done so far, and our classmates give us constructive criticism to help improve the magazine. This is such an important part to the class because it helps me improve what I’ve done, and I also love seeing what everyone else has been creating!

One of my favorite pages of my magazine is the Table of Contents. It tells so much about what’s about to be revealed in just one page. Mine still needs a few more adjustments, but here it is so far!

I wanted my magazine to be simple with a lot of white space so that it makes the images the main focus. I can’t wait to show you guys the finished project!
