With my text paths I had used the text tool and typed out my name and then I got 4 images off of the internet. The first was a floral print of yellow flowers and opened up a new tab and copied it over and under the words and did this for the rest but with the other images.

First I started with a black background and added two more square layers and did different shades of green. Then  I first started with my flower and used the circle tool and stretched it to more of an oval and made many copy's and made the pedals two different shades of pink. Then I made the first layer and changed the lengths of each and made a second layer and did the same compressed them again and made the third layer. Then I made a plain circle and added it to the center and changed the pattern and faded the edging out to blend more into the flower. First with my butterfly I used the circle tool and changed the shape with the sub-selection tool and did the same for the inner and shrunk it down and group them together. Then I copied and reflected it over to the other side. Then I created the body with the sub-selection tool and created another oval inside it and changed it to a lighter green than the outside. Lastly for my bottom wings I did the same as the top wings but more rounded and added an inner glow of black and two dots with the circle tool and then copied and reflected it over to the other side.

 Curiosity: For this one i chose a very random turquoise color background and added a satin gradient and stretched the centered line more vertically and then faded the waves out to give it the blurred fuzzy look. I chose Curiosity because there are lines going in different directions and then all blurring which looks confusing.
 Anguish: For anguish i chose very bold colors to pop out so i set a solid blue background and then added a waves gradient and changed it to a basic solid red. Then I used the the centered line and stretched the wave horizontally and faded it out. Then I chose anguish because the two are very bold colors and stand out and give the emotion of anger.
 Pleasure: For this one I went and added the cone gradient and centered it. Then i went into fill options and went to edit and chose the pastel color sequence which created to the rainbow effect around the cone eclipse. This represented pleasure because pleasure means being happy and these are very bright and colorful.
Irritability: For confused I set the background color as more of an offset blue and added the folds gradient and stretched it more vertically and farther away. This gave it many different patterns and blurs and compression to create the look of confusion. This is because there are so many lines and different shapes and irritable to look at.

Loneliness: For loneliness I set the the back to a lighter more moody blue and gave it the gradient of bars and went into fill options and put in the swirl texture and lightened it to about 5% to make it more bare. Then I went into colors and stretched the bar colors farther out to have the two lines more spaced. These colors for me are a sad feeling effect and the lines keep going makes me feel sad.
