- Miss W. has done such an amazing job organizing the Student Blogging Challenge and has made our first experience with blogging an enjoyable and educational one. We have learned so much in such a short period of time.
- Having looked at Edublogs before, I was unsure whether or not I wanted to give it a try until I found some of the previous student challenges Miss W. had done. They looked really well organized and like it would be a lot of fun. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed and will definitely be participating in future challenges.
Thank you Miss W!
You have been sweet, kind, welcoming, and such a wonderful help!
- In the Student Challenge: Week 6, Miss W. encouraged writing a post about one of your passions, which inspired me to re-visit one of my passions, drawing. It has been a while since I have drawn anything, so I decided to make a picture for Miss W., thanking her for all of her help and reminding me that, I too, should take some time for myself to enjoy the things I love to do.
- Making the picture was easy but deciding which frame and design I liked best was harder, so I decided to add four of my most favorite frame designs. Click on the pictures above to view as a photo gallery.
- Which one do you like best? I would love to hear your comments. And of course, Miss. W., I am most curious which one is your favorite. 🙂 ??
A little info about the pictures:
- I drew the original picture on watercolor paper, outlining the picture with a thin, black sharpie, erased all pencil marks, then colored using Faber Castell watercolor pencils, (my favorite), and I also really like the Inktense pencils (amazing color).
- Scanned the picture (300 x 300 dpi – 24 bit color) and saved as a JPG image to a file on my computer. (Sometimes saving as a TIFF image is better, but I wanted to send it to my phone and JPGs are better for that.)
- For picture #1: I used Photoshop, (which is now available available in Adobe Creative Cloud for teachers and students), to add the frame and text, also I had to save the picture as a PNG image in order for it to show up right on the blog.
- For pictures #2, #3, and #4: I emailed the picture to my phone and used the photo app, InstaCollage Pro, to add the frames and design.
- Then, emailed the pictures back to my computer (sometimes faster to do than using Dropbox), and added the text using Photoshop. Then saved the image for the web as a GIF file.
- Well, that’s about it. Any questions, just ask 🙂 .
