For this assignment, I remixed a Visual assignment that I did weeks back. Originally, as you can tell by the title of the blog, I had to create a visual that showed my pet on campus. I also had to add in my western character, so there she is, Bonnie Sue!
For the remix, I had to advertise DS106 in some way. I simply brought the image up on canva and added a text that says “DS106, where you get to do weird stuff like this”. I thought this advertisement was fitting, considering this assignment looks very odd to the eye of an average joe!
For my first remix assignment, I chose the holiday mashup assignment I did for this week and hit remix! The instructions for this remix simply said to “‘stache it”! So, I chose the egg to put a mustache on.
I used Canva (like I did to create the original image) and searched the images for mustache. After finding one, I added it to the egg, and I was done!
- NOTE — I did not realize that I needed to press the “Remix It” button again after seeing the remix assignment the first time, so therefore I do not have the tags 🙁 But I do for my next assignment!
For this assignment [4.5/12 stars — putting me over 12 stars for the week], we had to mash up an emoji and a friend (as the title says..)
I chose my favorite emoji and one of my favorite people for this one! It was pretty simple, I used SnapChat to make the emoji really large, saved the picture, then placed it beside a picture of my roommate doing the same pose using the Layout app.
I then used Canva to put the cowgirl hats on them! I chose this assignment to incorporate my character, Bonnie Sue. Although she’s not physically in this image, this is her favorite cowgirl hat of all time! She let me borrow them just so I could do better on my assignment. How sweet 🙂
For this assignment [4.5/12 stars], we had to somehow mashup 2 iconic movie scenes. I found it hard to really blend two SCENES together, so I chose to do one scene + a character inserted into that scene.
I chose Star Wars for the scene part. It’s my all-time favorite movie series – I have been watching it with my dad and brother since I was just a youngin’. I chose a scene with Han, Leia, and Luke. As you can see, I chose to add in the cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland (another all-time favorite movie of mine!)
In alot of Alice in Wonderland scenes, the cheshire cat is just creeping in the background, usually above the characters. To mash these two movies together, I used Canva, and increased the transparency on the cat image because that’s how he usually is seen in Alice in Wonderland.
Overall, this was a fun assignment!
For this assignment [4/12 stars], we had to mash three of our favorite holidays together however we wanted using some type of editing software. I used Canva, and as always, it never disappoints!
My three favorite holidays, as you can likely tell, are Christms, Easter, and Thanksgiving. I tried to set it up as a Christmas tree scene, with the “presents” under the tree representing the holidays. As you can see, the pie and turkey represent Thanksgiving, the egg and the rabbit represent Easter, and the snowflakes, christmas tree, and snowman under the tree represent Christmas!
This assignment was my first mashup assignment, and it was pretty fun and easy to do!
