My New Box of Crayons

Okay, I don't really have a new box of crayons, but I do have my first ever "art" class. It's called "GRTC 3353 Visual Communications Technology" and I wish I was having it in a not-so-busy semester because I think it's going to be fun. (I also think that I do NOT have really good instincts when it comes to graphics design, so I definitely can use the help!)

Our first assignment is to create 5 different "invitations". Now these are expected to be "amateurish" since we haven't had any training yet. They will be what we measure ourselves against at the end of the semester to see how well we've done, and how much we've improved. Would you like to see my "before" images? Check next to them to see what the assignment was. Also, click on them to see them in a larger size.
