This week I was tasked with completing 12 stars of MashUp assignments. So, first up for 4.5 stars was the “Close Up” assignment that challenged me to take a close up picture of someone and put it on a new background. Check out the new Mt. Rushmore (renamed to Eastrush) in my blog post Eastrush. […]
For my second remix assignment I made my Holiday MashUp assignment into a scarier version. Since it was light and fun, I thought the opposite would be scary or spooky. I used Canva to take my original Holiday Mashup and add a ghost and scary skeleton/bones on the ground.
For my first remixed assignment I used one of my very first ds106 projects for the semester and hid Waldo into it. I used Canva to layer the two images one on top of the other. Can you find Waldo?
For my choice of assignments this week I chose “Photo Through Different Lenses” where I took an everyday object, like a pen, and photographed it in unique ways. I documented my process in A pen is a pen, unless…. This week I also completed six stars of web assignments. I started with making a “Finsta” for […]
For the “Photo through Different Lenses” assignment I was tasked with taking an everyday item and photographing it in unexpected ways. I chose a pen, because that was closest. I felt I was most creative near the middle of this- after I did the obvious and before I started becoming desperate. My favorite shot was […]
For my last mashup assignment this week, I took a couple of my boyfriend’s favorite teams and put them together. I used the L.A. Rams, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Boston Red Sox. I was trying to also incorporate the San Antonio Spurs, but they weren’t fitting in a way that made sense. I used Canva to […]
For my next mashup assignment I created a “Holiday MashUp.” My three holidays I chose were Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day. Christmas is my absolute most favorite holiday. EVER. I’m so excited to start decorating, but haven’t been able to start yes because I’ve been so busy with school! I also like Easter and Independence […]
My first mash up assignment I tackled this week was “I’m Ready for My Close Up.” I took a picture of my oldest and cropped it, used a filter, and adjusted the brightness to make it match the stone of Mt. Rushmore in the photo. I used Canva to put the two photos together, and […]
For my second assignment I chose to complete a “Finsta.” To be honest, I didn’t know what a “finsta” was so I had to google it. Once I realized what a finsta was, I decided to make an account for my fictitious superhero, Madame Polygraph. I’ve embedded her first post here, but you can also check […]
For one of my web assignments I chose the assignments “Google Draw Something.” I had never heard of this before and it was fun! My 10 year old watched me complete this and was eager to try himself! For some reason I couldn’t share my results on twitter, so I took a screen shot of […]
