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?

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!

Holiday Mashup

Since the holiday season is about to be in full swing I thought what a perfect time to do this assignment. It is worth 4 stars, and is super fun!

To start I picked my three holidays to mashup, I chose Christmas, Forth of July, and Halloween! I love all three holidays. I googled images for each of these holidays to crop together. Here are the originals…

 

Then I used my favorite editing app Pasteify! Although this app only allows you to crop two images together at one time it is so simple and easy to use that I often use it multiple times!

First I combined the Christmas tree picture and the firework picture together using the standard Pasteify app 3 step system (choosing a background, highlighting the parts of the foreground you want to keep, and combining the two into one cropped image). Then once I had those two images combined into one I used that new image and cropped the pumpkin into it using the same 3 step system within the Pasteify app. It sounds complicated, but it is so simple and took me 5 minutes tops! Here is my final product! I really wanted the image to look like one complete picture. I used the firework for Forth of July as the Christmas tree star, and the Halloween pumpkin as a gift under the tree! I am pretty happy with the overall Holiday Mashup!
