This daily create was to make a ransom note for Jim Groom being kidnapped. I decided to play in publisher with different types of fonts, colors, and such. Thought I would play off the fact that he has the Atari. He seems to be having fun with it.
I cropped the text boxes for each letter to look like some of the ways people cut stuff out of the paper.
This daily create was to abstract sketch of your favorite moment of the week. With all those snow days, I was able to spend time with my daughter. There were many favorite moments, from teaching her how to play card games like War, to playing “I Love the 80’s” board game. So in general, I drew myself and my daughter.
This daily create was to show the different sides of me. I used publisher to do this collage because I did not have access to photoshop when I was doing this. I picked several pictures of myself and cropped them together. One is from when I was 3 and all sweet and innocent, mashed with one when I was about 24 playing with how I would look with lip piercings. The second set is from my senior picture and one I took a couple of months ago. The saying of “If I knew then, what I know now” It is interesting to see the differences throughout the years. I am still all those side, innocent, sweet, trouble making, fun loving, and classy (well, depends on what is going on).
This daily create was to make a video of the things that bring me joy in my life. Well, it is my family.
The first picture is of my parents. My dad has been gone for almost 5 years now, but they were and are a big part of my life.
The second is my daughter (of course). The third is my daughter and her dad. I always enjoy the way they love each other and me. The forth is my best friend. Need I say more. We are two peas in a pod. Scare as it may be. The fifth is a creepy house. This symbolizes the mysteries, haunted houses and other great things that I enjoy.
It wasn’t hard to find things I find joy in. It was quick to put it together and upload it.
This daily create was to use blue and orange for an “action movie” type picture. I was trying to find somethings that would look interesting in those colors. I thought about a ninja being in the action movies. The other is the blue sky with a moon. Well, gotta have a moon in it.
This daily create ask to elevate your heel with an everyday object. I chose to use my daughter and her bat and ball. I thought that the colors would stand out. Especially with her hot pink socks. Unfortunately, I could not get the bat to stay on the ball, so I had to change them around. It was easier for her to stand with the ball on the bat under her heel.
This daily create challenges you to make some form of jewelry or clothing with food. I took a taco bowl and made a crown. Two candy canes made up the earrings. Last was a candy wand that my daughter held.
She liked posing for the picture and thought it was funny that it was food.
This daily create is to go on to the internet arcade site and video tape you playing one of the games. After that you are supposed to upload it to youtube.
Well, I choose to play Q-Bert. It is an oldie but goodie. It took me several tries to get used to how the keys were to be used. My daughter was cheering me on for the first few, but well it can be boring watching someone else do it.
