Fortune Cookie

 This project lead me to becoming stumped. I had no idea what to do for this project. So I picked up a magazine from the library called (I think) Art News that I was hoping would give me more ideas. Looking through the magazine, I saw a lot of Japanese artwork. Fortunes cookies are an Asian tradition, so I knew I wanted to keep researching different ideas on Japanese culture. Knowing that there are a lot of cherry blossoms in Japan, I searched it up on the internet. Cherry blossoms mean that the beginning of spring has started, so based on my fortunes, I decided to base my whole fortune cookie project on "New Beginnings." Later on, I soon started thinking about how birds can symbolize letting go to the past, flying away, and starting something new. The corners of paper symbolize the material left from the past.
