Happy week two everyone!
This week was a lot better than last for me, I played around with WordPress some and got the lay of the land figured out (I think). I had a lot of fun with the Daily Creates on Twitter (check them out, here!) Sorry you all had to experience my artistic struggle with the drawing. The first daily create, I took maybe a little too literally but I figured it still explained the quote, so I went with it! For the second, I got to color a cow! I was real excited about this one, because I love cows, like a lot. I just kinda went with my imagination and chose random colors for him. The third one was another pretty simple one, we just had to knock on something with some sort of pattern. Overall, I enjoyed doing the Daily Create assignments! I thought they were fun, quick little things that you can get done with simple tools.
The Assignment Bank assignments were a little different, but I love them because they’re all made by people for other people to do! I love that idea, mostly because the assignments are created by us which I think makes them more fun and relatable. I chose a Visual, Web and Writing assignment for this week. My visual assignment involved taking a photo and changing the color and hue to make it look totally different. I used a picture of a garden decoration shaped like a butterfly that I took from underneath (so you can see the sky). I darkened it some and then brightened the pink in the clouds. I changed the hue around and honestly just moved the dial until I thought it looked pretty. I used the editing software that came with my surface, not sure what it’s called. My web assignment was my favorite, by far! I got to create my dream room on Pinterest (which I’m obsessed with). I had a lot of fun searching through bedroom ideas and furniture to find things I liked. I think once I have the money and time to actually decorate my own room, it’s going to be a problem getting everything to match and go together. The last assignment, I wrote about freshman move in day, which was a pretty chill day! I also added a little picture of Bushnell and circled my room, for reference.
I got to know a little more about WordPress and my chosen theme this week as well. I added two new pages including and About page. I also officially named my blog (yay!)!I explored the assignment bank as well and tagged some assignments that looked interesting for the future. I’m excited to see what the Daily creates have in store for us this week too!
