I feel as though this 2 star challenge is my calling. I love Valentine’s Day, I spend every Valentine’s weekend with two of my three sisters and we always watch John Tucker Must Die and eat pints of ice cream and just catch up (since out of the six people in my family we live in 4 different states). So while Valentine’s Day is special to me, I never have really shared it with someone special (whomppp). So here comes the best part, this assignment lets us pick a blank Valentine’s Day card and add a caption for it. First of all, these selections were just too perfect, but I ended up picking this picture because it just seemed to be one of the most awkward ones.
Instantly I thought that the boy in the background was particularly creeping on the girl in the front, so I wanted to do something like that. The story I had imagined in my head was that he had a huge crush on her and finally had the guts to give the “popular girl” a note confessing his love to her. Seems realistic right? So I saved the picture and imported it into GIMP. I then used the text box editor to add text in three spots; the top of the picture, bottom of the picture, and on the note itself. In order to make the color of the text tell you who the perspective was from, I used the same color from the guy’s sweater to be text color (which I thought was a nice touch). So what did I write? Why don’t you find out right now!
Thanks for reading!
