Holiday Mashup

For this assignment, I was tasked with combining three of my favorite holidays onto one photo. My favorite holiday would definitely have to be Christmas, and my family still likes to convince the kids that Santa is real…..lol . So, I decided it would be easiest to find a picture of Santa for this. My next favorite holiday would definitely have to be Valentines Day. I am not sure if a lot of people consider this a holiday but I do. So, I just copied a picture of a heart and posted onto my photo along with Santa. My third favorite holiday would have to be Easter due to my favorite animal being a bunny and the fact that I receive so much candy on that day. Basically for all of the photos that I had found, I pasted them on Pixlr and cut them out to make them neater. From there, I then worked on layering/placing them where it would make the most sense. Overall, I think this picture spreads the joy, love and creativeness just upon first glance. However, let me know what you guys think of this!

Weekly Summary

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a fantastic week! This week I had a lot on my plate. I had to complete a couple other projects from my other classes at the beginning of this week, so I did not really have too much time to really complete some of these Video Assignments like I had wanted to. However, I was only able to create two daily creates this week, which can be seen down below.

Next up, I completed 10 stars worth of assignments this week! I created a Night Time Routine video, a Dear 16 Year old me video, a How to be a Healthier You video and a What do You do on an everyday basis video. Which all of those videos can be seen down below!

My Night Routine!

So, for this Assignment, I was tasked with recording my night time routine! It is weird to have the camera on you as you are completing your routine, I do not understand how these Youtubers do it. However, I must say that I did enjoy creating and editing the video. I would love to hear the feedback from you guys about my editing skills. Next time when I complete this video, I will for sure add music but I hope you guys enjoy my video because this actually a real routine of mine and not just one I made up for the camera!

How to be a Healthier you

In this assignment, I believe it stated to give tips on anything you want to. So, I decided I would take the tips that my mom has taught me while I was growing up. To this day, I still follow these tips that she has taught me. I mean these tips may not be for everyone, but if you would like to hear them, please take a peak at my video and let me know if there are any tips that you practice or anything!

What do YOU do on an everyday basis?

This assignment, I had to record myself performing an activity that I do on an everyday basis. I had to record myself for 8 seconds, so I decided to record myself texting. I mean I am not going to lie and say that I do not text on an everyday basis because I do. I decided to incorporate the texting sounds along with my video. I also added a title screen with the question from the prompt.

Dear 16 Year Old Me

For this assignment, I was tasked with giving advice to my 16 year old self. When I was 16, I was in the beginning of my senior year of high school. I remember during this time, I was struggling (mentally). I was also so worried about what others thought of me and I was trying to keep this perfect image. I was never allowed to really let go and be free and it also took me a very long time to find peace with myself and to eventually love myself. So, I channeled what I was thinking and wrote myself a little script and found a quote that I thought was encouraging but let me know what you think or advice that you would give yourself at 16.

Makeup Tips and Tricks!

I decided to tackle the “Teach me Something” Assignment from the Video Bank. I decided that I would give my tips and tricks for makeup, that seem to work for me when I decide to put it on. Now, I am no expert when it comes to makeup, just letting you know. I have some experience when I used to do makeup for weddings and events like Prom but like I said I am not an expert. I hope you guys find this video helpful! Let me know what you think!

Q&A

Hello folks! For my first video assignment, I had decided to complete the “Get to Know Me” Assignment. For this assignment, I had recorded myself on my computer and uploaded it to iMovie where I would then add in background music and finally upload to Youtube. I had my close friends send me questions for this assignment. I have posted the video below, so let me know what you think!

Weekly Summary

This week was relatively light for me all around. I did not have too much work to complete this week. I also had the opportunity to listen to a radio show and reflect in a blog which can be seen below as well! I was able to complete my three daily creates which can be seen below.

I had also been tasked with creating a story using my daily creates! I have posted that below, so let me know what you think!

Below you can find my project idea for my final project. I also had a great time attempting to recreate or revamp 2 assignments. It was interesting to reread them and then try to figure how to remix them, but I attempted it! You can find them below as well!

Dear Carrie Take 2!

For my second rework assignment, I had decided to take one of the writing assignments that I had completed in the beginning of the semester. I believe for this assignment I had to wrote a letter to myself in the future. So, I figured that now that I know how to add music and background sounds to my assignments using Audacity, that I would give that a go. I mean I feel that it would mean more with an actual voice behind and some nice hopeful music in the background. So, let me know what you think!
