My final is due at 6.00PM and I need to finish my final, thing is, I don't know how to finish it because I can't think of anything else to do with it and its incomplete. The assignment was making a collage using any amount of items in just one color. I am using silver and I know I am half way done but I again, don't know how to finish it! She says she wants a minimum of 20 different things. Here are what I have used so far:

-Tinsel
-coins
-aluminum foil
-Kisses wraps
-silver sharpie
-china paper
-glittery gel
-wood
-cd.


I really need help on this. Seriously, its my FINAL and if I get a bad grade, I may flunk the entire class. My grade isn't bad, I have 89%, but the final is a MAYOR MAYOR portion of my grade and may bump it down to a C+. A C+ will make my eyes bleed.

Why is it that I have never had any ridiculous finals like make a collage? Mine are just boring old tests.

silver things near me right now:

nail clippers, spoon, staples, picture frame, prong from an electrical plug, keys

There are lots of metal things that are silver in color - paper clips, staples, safety pins, tacks, wire, solder, jewelry etc. What about silver colored plastic things (my cell phone and one of my pens are silver, for example)?

I've gotten C+'s before, and my eyes never bled. Though maybe if they had, I would've worked harder to avoid getting any more C+'s. [Wink]

Hmmm. Silver things within my sight: a pen, wire, beads, batteries, scissors, cd player.

That's it, sorry.

Also: Do you have a fabric and/or crafts store near you? You could get a lot of stuff for low cost.

Take some kind of canned food, and tear the label off. If that's too heavy, open the can, being very careful with the lid, and use the lid. Maybe put tape around the edges.

Do you have nails and/or screws? Would a DVD count as something different from a CD?

Try a cotton ball. If someone objects, point out that it represents a cloud, and that every cloud has... well, you know.

If you have an old camera or phone you can take apart for parts, some of those are bound to be silver.

Also, mirrors.

I was thinking about the mirror, but I don't know how to cut it without cutting myself.

Don't. Go to the drugstore and get a little one for a couple of bucks instead.

the dremel is that can? I'm not sure Michael's carries that, besides I already spent 20 of my mom's cash on this, I haven't been paid from work yet. I don't plan on spending more than that on this. Money is starting to be an issue with me now...

No, that's not a dremel. That's a can of spray paint.

A dremel is a cutting tool. The first time I ever saw one, my dad was using it. I walked in and he said, "Hey, look at this, Anne, it cuts through metal!" I am afraid of them.

Soda tabs are brilliant!

Try not to use too many wrappers (it's the same thing)

The drugstore should have duct tape, if you have time to go buy some.

How much time do you have left?

Good luck! [Smile]

So...seriously, why don't you just spray paint a bunch of crap silver, glue it to what you've already got, and call it a day?

Even the watch casing itself might do, depending on color. Or the buttons/works.
