Tutorial for a Mashup assignment

I am going to show you how I made a mashup design for a DS106¬†assignment¬†called “This Doesn’t Belong Here”, which you can find in the DS106 Assignment bank by clicking on the link above. In this assignment, we had to mash 2 movie scenes together.

I am going to go through each step that I took to make this design! Feel free to comment below with questions.


First, I googled “iconic star wars scenes”


Then, I googled ‘cheshire cat’


I then opened up http://www.canva.com, a website that I have come to love through this class! I use it for alot for design and visual assignments. To the left, there is a tab you can click on called “Uploads”. You can simply drag and drop the image you want to chooe, or you can upload it from your files. Once uploaded, you can insert it into the blank canvas.


I then did the same thing for the cheshire cat image. I made it a little smaller, though. It’s really to resize things on Canva.


I then double-clicked the chesire cat picture. As you can see, there is a transparency tool you can use to make it more/less transparent.


I then used Windows Photo Viewer to rotate my picture. Then, bam, I was done!

I hope this helps!
