Sketch for 6A

This project really got into my head. Off the bat I knew what talk I wanted to use, because it is my favorite talk as of yet. Having the talk I wanted to use I had to decide what pictures I wanted to show because I wanted my message to be clear with a picture. I have difficulty with showing a weak and strong object so thought that if you see young and older it might give you a sense of what message I was trying to give and the same problem I had with showing a good sacrifice vs a bad one. Once I had all my pictures designing was a difficult because I am not comfortable but remembered that making it simple would go a long way. I used the colors from the 1st slide as the colors I would just through out the slides, and I achieved those colors with the eyedropper feature in PowerPoint.

Message- To remind others as well as myself that we are not forgotten by our Heavenly Father. The petals on the Forget-me-Not flowers are used a metaphor and stand for something that we should remember and that he wants us to know always.

Audience- Everyone, we all need a reminder from time to time that we are loved and cared for. Our Heavenly Father loves us and sends messages like these  so that we can feel his love when we need it the most.

Color Scheme: Split Complementary, Colors used were : Blue, Purple, and Gold.

Heather Simpson Hi Erika, I love your choice of talk. I remember it well.
I like the continuity of the blue/purple borders on each slide. It is very effective at tying it all together. On your 5th slide, titled “Sacrifices,” I would recommend choosing different pictures that don’t have to be edited so much. I found that the choppy lines from removing the background were distracting. The scale looks great, but the two others are a little uneven. Other than that one suggestion, I think it looks fantastic!

I took the recommendations of Sister Larson in changing the colors in my shapes with the eyedropper tool and used the same colors through out the slides. They originated from the flower garden in Slide 1. I also changed the placement of my text shapes as I didn’t want it to be distracting or create tension within my slide as Sister Larson suggested. I followed the directions she gave when fixing the baby but that’s how I think the image is a bit smutch in, I kept the format grabbed on the corner and dragged pressing ctrl so I hope that helps. Heather suggestion was to change the images inside of the scale but I couldn’t find another picture that got my point across like the ones I had so I didn’t change that.

I critiqued Heather Simpson and Megan Sue Sirrine Slide Design Project.
