Since the holiday season is about to be in full swing I thought what a perfect time to do this assignment. It is worth 4 stars, and is super fun!
To start I picked my character Little Brain’s three favorite holidays to mashup. His favorite holidays are Christmas because he can always read his parents minds and figure out his presents. The Forth of July because he is amazed by the chemistry of the fireworks. And lastly Halloween because he can read the people’s minds to figure out who they are even though they are wearing masks and costumes! To start I googled images for each of these holidays to crop together. Here are the originals…
Then I used my favorite editing app Pasteify! Although this app only allows you to crop two images together at one time it is so simple and easy to use that I often use it multiple times!
First I combined the Christmas tree picture and the firework picture together using the standard Pasteify app 3 step system (choosing a background, highlighting the parts of the foreground you want to keep, and combining the two into one cropped image). Then once I had those two images combined into one I used that new image and cropped the pumpkin into it using the same 3 step system within the Pasteify app. It sounds complicated, but it is so simple and took me 5 minutes tops! Here is my final product! I really wanted the image to look like one complete picture. I used the firework for Forth of July as the Christmas tree star, and the Halloween pumpkin as a gift under the tree! I am pretty happy with the overall Holiday Mashup!
