For my remix assignment this week, I chose an assignment that looked fun, the A to Z food picture collage, and hit remix. The first one that came up was the “‘Stache it” assignment. I figured I could have some fun with that one, so I went for it.
How I did it:
I decided to do it in Microsoft Word since that is the easiest program for me to work with. I googled all of my different foods, found below and copied and pasted them in alphabetical order into word.
Apple, Banana, Carrot, Deer, Egg, Fish, Green beans, Ham, Ice cream, Jello, Kiwi, Lima Beans, Marshmallows, Nachos, Orange, Peas, Quail, Radish, Salmon, Turnip, Upside down cake, Vinegar, Watermelon, Xmas cookies, Yams, Zucchini
I resized them to make sure that they all fit on a single page–that was a little tough. Then I googled mustache PNG so that I could put the mustache over the foods without having to physically cut out the mustache from the background image. I found the Moustache at that website. I then copied it and pasted it 26 times into Microsoft word. I had to right click on the picture and hit move to front so that it would be in front of the fruit pictures. Then I resized it and rotated it if I needed to and voila, I have 26 foods that have mustaches on them. Then to get the whole page on one screen I went to View>Full Screen Reading and it pulled it up so that the page was all on one screen. Then I hit CTRL>Print Screen and pasted it back into word. I right clicked and hit “Save as picture” and saved it as a picture. I then opened that picture in Windows Photo Editor and cropped the picture. Then I put it on Flickr.
Here is my finished product:
