"I have grown from this project on being a better pen tool user and all the special things like bevel and emboss.

I learned a lot from the bevel and emboss it makes everything stand out against the background. It brings out the picture to make it look more real.

This project demonstrated stretch for me because I do not really know much about the pen tool and using bevel and emboss to highlight the images."
