The remix button is a little weird.
I went through my old assignments that I thought might be good to remix. A lot of them didn’t make sense, and for one I just kept getting a picture that had no meaning to it.
After going through some assignments, I found two that I knew I could work with.
The first one relates to my favorite photo post. The remix? Mustache it.
I thought it would be really funny to do this to my cats so I knew I wanted to do this one.
I uploaded the picture to Powerpoint and used the graphics the program has to add a moustache. I sized it and changed the color accordingly. I thought about going back and using the noun project, but the graphic in Powerpoint was almost the same with what I found on the Noun Project. Plus, with Powerpoint, I can change the color.
The only thing is that I wish I could change the texture of it to make it look more natural. But, this was supposed to be an easy one so I just left it. I still think it’s kinda funny. I love the picture of cats who have actual mustaches because of the coloring of their fur.
The next one I chose was name that single assignment since the remix matched well to what I originally did.
No one ever guessed it, but my original single was Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard.
When I saw sidekick, I thought of what may go along with sugar. Flour, of course!
It threw me back to Blue’s Clues with Salt, Pepper, and Paprika. What simpler times.
So, I went back to and copied the picture from the blog post. I couldn’t find the old project on my computer, and I probably deleted it since I only have so much room on my OneDrive.
I then went back to the Noun Project. The issue with the Noun Project images was that it didn’t match the color scheme I had going on. So what I did was take one of their icons and color it in with my surface to make it match. The lines and stuff aren’t perfect, but I think it ended up matching well enough.
The only thing I would have liked to add was a face to the flour since the sugar has it, but I couldn’t find any room with the icons I looked up.
This assignment was interesting. I think it’s fun when the remix button works out, but it took me a few tries to actually find one that works. It was also pretty cool to go back and look at some of my old assignments. How is it that school is almost done?
