The FINAL weekly Summary! It's been a fun 14 weeks (15 if you count Thanksgiving break), but it's now time for winter break and much needed zzz's. Someone else said this in their summary, and I want to echo the sentiment- this class was more work than…

Looking back, I started this project with only a dream in my heart, but then I made it real. I made it…

DAILY CREATE: Week 14

It's the official last week of Daily Creates! Well, it's been fun, but the semester has finally come to an end. I set out thinking I'd do 6 daily's each week as a personal artists' goal, and I succeeded! This week's daily's were all fun, so it's difficult to say which one was my favorite.I liked doing the maze doodle because it was a daily that I actually came up with and submitted as an idea. Making my cat Doodle look active was fun because I got to make a reference to Untitled Goose Game. I liked drawing myself as…

DAILY CREATE: Week of Thanksgiving

This week was Thanksgiving break, but that didn't keep me from doing daily creates, because skipping a week while the semester is still going would be like skipping an episode in a TV series, or a book in a book series, and I have to do things in order. But enough about my weird and very specific control freak tendencies, (I'm not controlling in most other ways, i.e. my room is constantly a mess), because I want to talk about my favorite daily's!This week's winner for favorite create is the creative name task! I always enjoy looking up words, and…

It felt weird not having to post this week, but it was also a nice breather as I planned out what I was going to do for my final projects (not just for this class, but for my other class as well). It's been a stressful time since all the classes are wrapping…

DAILY CREATE: Week 13

No Daily Creates this week?! Psh. How about 6, as per usual, haha. It would feel weird to quit now, especially since the end of the semester is so near. It ain't over 'til it's over!This week, we posted a book title from emojis, we created some shadow art, we described a favorite place in nature, we made a photo with reflections, we explained what cheerfulness means, and we photo edited Mr. Bean into an improbable place!I think the daily's were all pretty equal this week- there isn't one that really stands out, except perhaps the reflections picture which got…

WEEKLY SUMMARY: Week 12

♪ People just love to play with words/images/audio/videoPeople just love to play, haven't you heard?People just love to play with words/images/audio/videoPeople just love to play, haven't you heard? ♪Melody(Men) at Work This week was perhaps the best week of Ds106, because we got to make mashups, remixes, and tutorials! (I'm a fan of mashups- they're fun to do). In my mind, remixes and mashups are the same thing, but I can see how remixes are a little more limited with one type of media, whereas mashups take content from all over. Mashup Assignments I did 10 stars of mashups this…

DAILY CREATE: Week 12

This week, we made blackout poems and posted our favorite quote, we described our dream job and showed off a meaningful object, we used three words to describe a favorite song and we added to an image of a roadblock! In terms of posting, my favorite two daily's were the meaningful object and the dream job. I like showing off arts and crafts that I've done, because I created them for me, not for school or for a job. Art for the sake of art does good things to your heart.Speaking of which, I liked creating the Bob Ross quote,…
