Then I decided to create a tutorial right after completing a new assignment that way the steps and process I followed were extremely fresh in my mind! So right after I finished my first mashup assignment I completed my tutorial as well! Hope this helps any future ds106’ers with Mashup week!

I’m Ready for My Closeup Tutorial

Then I did my first remix assignment of the week! I remixed Places of Peace assignment and the remix card said “subtle swticheroo”.

REMIXXX! Places of Peace

Then for my second remix assignment I decided to remix a new assignment one I had never seen or done before! I remixed Destination Post Card assignment! The remix card said “Stache It”, can you guess what that means?

REMIXXX #2! Destination Post Card

Lastly this week I completed my two daily creates!

First: 1 Red element

To complete this assignment I first took a picture of an object that is red, so I decided upon an apple! Then I used the app color splash. This app makes it really easy because it turns the image all black and white, and then you get to highlight the parts of the image you want to revert back to its original color! Resulting in a color splashed image!

Second: ds106 in real life

And finally commenting!!

REMIXXX #2! Destination Post Card

So the original point of this assignment is to create a post card for some travel destination! Since I love to travel I decided to chose this assignment to remix! The remix card read: “Stache It”. The goal of the remixed assignment is to add a mustache into the assignment somehow. To complete this assignment I first decided to just create a normal post card and then add the mustache in post card creation! I created my normal post card by editing an image that I had in my camera roll from a previous trip I had taken. I edited the image in snapchat by adding text onto the image, and a few “sticker” icon images to add to the post card vibe. Then to incorporate the remix aspect of this assignment I used Pasteify my favorite cropping/photoshopping app to overlay a mustache image into my destination postcard! Then I shared my final image on twitter! Hope you consider Costa Rica for your next vacation!

REMIXXX! Places of Peace

For my first remix assignment this week I chose an assignment I have previously completed. I loved completing the original so I decided to remix Places of Peace! The remix card read “Subtle Switcheroo”. Its goal was to just make one or two slight subtle changes to the assignment. I decided to complete 2 small changes to the assignment, see if you can guess the changes based on my completion of the remixed assignment!

People of Peace #ds106

Here were my two subtle switcheroo’s: Places of peace were changed to people that make you feel at peace, and instead of posting it to twitter you need to share it to flickr! Very subtle changes, did you guess them correctly?

John Wall Highlight Tape

John Wall is one of the most exciting players to watch in the NBA today. Now I know I have a biased opinion because he is the Washington Wizard’s star player, but it’s hard to disagree with that statement. John Wall does it all, he is a two way guard who can produce offensively, and play lockdown defense. John Wall is a 27 year old point guard from Raleigh North Carolina, who played one year at the University of Kentucky. Wall was drafted first overall by the Washington Wizards in 2010, and he has spent his entire career in Washington. The four time all star has made a name for himself in the league, and is considered to be one of the best true point guards in the league today. The entire city of Washington loves John Wall not only because of his skill, but also because of his loyalty to the program and his work for the community. John Wall has expressed his love for D.C. and promises to bring a championship back to Washington. I created a highlight reel of some of John Wall’s most exciting plays from his 7 years in league, and I set the tape to the popular hip hop song “Do the John Wall” by Troop 41.

Photo Mash

The last Mashup assignment I completed for this week was the Photo Mash assignment worth 3 1/2 stars! The idea of this assignment was to combine 2 different actors into one image that actually makes sense and looks normal! For this I chose to pick two classic “School Mean Girls” and have them competing for Queen of the high school halls.

To complete this assignment I googled image searched classic movie mean girls and came up with two of my personal favorites, Regina George from Mean Girls and Lana from Princess Diaries. Once I had my two mean girl pictures I used photo shop to add them both to a background image of school lockers. To make the photo look realistic as the assignment wants I carefully chose two images that look similar. By this I mean I picked images of the two girls posing similarly, looking in the same direction, and had similar coloring allowing for a much simpler edit. I also chose the background image as a background that they have in common, high school hallway lockers! Then I tweeted my final product!
