• Week 13 Summary/Update on Final Project

    For my final project (I can’t believe the semester is ending), I have struggled with what to do for this final project. I knew I wanted to have my last project show my character’s ultimate superhero moment. I brainstormed for a few days. I decided on the idea of my character, Kate, going into a burning building to save an animal. I did some research and fire is very prominent in many myths, legends, and folklore, so I knew that would be a good choice to use. I found this article on all of the beliefs of people about fire. I decided to use a mashup, a video, and an…

  • Week 12 Summary

    This was a really fun week of assignments! I really liked all of the assignment options and it was hard to choose which ones to do. For the tutorial, I decided to do a mashup I had just done. I really like the holiday mashup, so I made a new mashup for the tutorial. I then incorporated my character into my assignment by placing her into an image by having her flying to rescue and animal. I then decided to mashup the nike and under armour logos which was fun to see together. My favorite project was the children’s book mashup where I mixed Dr. Seuss’ books the Cat in…

  • Daily Creates for Week 12

    For this week, we had to do two daily creates. I really liked the winter daily create because it was super cold that day and let me imagine being somewhere warm or on the beach. The next tweet I did was the celebratory tweet for 2500 tweets which is really cool! As usual, I felt like the daily creates were good practice at getting my mind to think creatively! Congrats! That's a lot of tweets! #tdc2500 #ds106 pic.twitter.com/Ujg6sskEZc — eahumw (@EmilyHutchins8) November 16, 2018 Dreaming of sunshine and warmth on this cold rainy day. #ds106 #tdc2497 pic.twitter.com/KIlOFBMFqG — eahumw (@EmilyHutchins8) November 13, 2018   Until next time, Emily

  • History Remix

    For this remix, there were not any instructions, so I looked at the image and decided what to do. The image involved a political cartoon on US history and remix wanted me to incorporate another language into the assignment. I decided to find pictures and make a collage of France’s history. I also wanted to incorporate the US in a way so I found a picture of the Statue of Liberty being built. I added the word “Bonjour” to have another language in the collage and found pictures of some important buildings and events in France’s history. It was kind of difficult with no instructions, but I like the way…

  • Logo Remix

    For this remix, I had to create an oxymoron from a previous assignment. My previous assignment was creating a mashup between  the Nike and Under Armour, so I decided to do the opposite of it. It was kind of hard to figure out how to do an oxymoron for it, so I decided to do the opposite way to remix it. I started by finding a different color nike swoosh and then used the same under armour title. I cut out the logos and then combined them using the photoshop mix website. Doing a remix was definitely different and required a little bit more thought of how to make an…

  • Holiday Tutorial

    For this assignment, I started to think about my favorite holidays. I decided that my favorite holidays were Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. You can use any photo editing website or app. I used the Photoshop Fix app to create the assignment. I decided to use a Christmas tree, turkey, and Easter eggs. I found pictures on google and then cutout each picture.   It was very easy to cut out the pictures. I then placed them around the tree. I made the Easter eggs look like presents and ornaments on the tree. I then cut the star out of the tree to be able to add the turkey to the…

  • Superhero Mashup

    For this assignment (4 stars), I decided to put my character, Kate, into a scene. I found a super hero character online and then used the “Photoshop Mix” website to cut her out. I thought that this character was a good representation of what Kate would like. I then found a picture of a raccoon stuck and scaling the side of the building. This was a previous story I worked on for Kate, so I decided to provide a visual image of it. I then placed ‘Kate’ in the image and positioned and adjusted her size to appear like she was flying to him. There was a woman in the…

  • Logo Mashup

    For this assignment (2 stars), I decided to mashup the nike slogan and the under armor logo. These are two big competitors, so I wanted to put them together. I started by finding the Under Armour logo and then cut it out on the “Photoshop Mix” app. I then found the nike “just do it” slogan. I wanted to find it in black to match the logo so it would stand out against the white background. I kept the background white because that is how you often see the nike and under armour logos. I think the two really fit well together and it is odd to see the two…

  • The Grinch in the Hat

    For the assignment (3 stars), I decided to mashup two Dr. Seuss books. I started by thinking about what I children’s books would be fun to put together. I then found found a blue background to imitate the Cat in the Hat background. I then found the grinch and his dog and cut them out. I put the pictures together using the “Photoshop Mix” app on my iPad. I then added the hat and bow tie to the grinch. I could not figure out how to get the hat to fit properly on the grinch’s head which was frustrating. I then found a font that was similar to the type…

  • Holiday Mashup

    For this assignment (4.5 stars), I decided to pick my favorite holidays and make them one. I chose the background to be fireworks to represent the Fourth of July. I really like getting to see the fireworks, and my family usually gets together with friends which is always a lot of fun. I then put a Christmas tree and Santa Claus for Christmas. I love getting to see my family and have time off for Christmas. I decided to have Santa give a bunny a “peep” as a present for Easter. Easter is another one of my favorite holidays because I feel it is always the start of Spring. Peeps are…
