For Project 1, I thought having texts, words, paragraphs from a book page as a background would be interesting. I am one who is attracted to prints and patterns thus I find that the paragraphs on a book page falls under that category as well.
With that, the one artist I know that has done these type of art work would be Sol LeWitt. Examples of his work shown below:

Besides Sol LeWitt’s, these are some of the research from Pinterest:

(Taken from: http://balzerdesigns.typepad.com/balzer_designs/2012/10/redacted-book-page-poems.html) Basically these 2 are those that circles some words within the page for some hidden meanings or poems that they come up on the spot or etc. I find them interesting and considered doing something like this, with doodles around the page.

(Taken from: https://www.etsy.com/listing/78061797/watercolor-art-print-blue-abstract-map) This image uses water colour on the book page. Perhaps I could use markers replacing the water colour?

And then I came across these beautiful eye-catching art/designs of Zentangle:

Perhaps, the negative space being the alphabet/initial(s) of my name?
‘HELLO’ was an in-class exercise that we did before Project 1 was introduced.
Here are the scanned version of the name tags:
Typography; I wanted to portray my identity in this name tag — headscarves and Arabic font (basically it reads UMMI, but from right to left) that I believe shows people who I am, and my religious beliefs.
Abstract; It was done to look like veins in our human body.
Conceptual; I like the thrills and excitement of riding roller coasters, thus the roller coaster for this name tag. It symbolizes overcoming challenges and fears as nothing in this world is a straight path to reach your goals.
HELLO MY NAME IS UMMI (:
