Honest Abe

We had to pick someone from history that represents American Creed. I picked Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln has done so anything for this country so I thought he was an example of American Creed.

The process of the masking was difficult for me. I am not very tech savvy. This project helped me get to know photoshop a little bit better. I struggled with picking the words I wanted to fill my silhouette. I wanted to pick words that not only portray American Creed but something that Abe Lincoln said. I picked unity, independence, freedom, loyalty. Abraham Lincoln said those words and those words represented him. This activity was important because it led me to understand what American Creed really meant.
