Our first task was to choose and share our One Little Word for the year. I chose "Family" and you can read about that and view my digital make on my post "One Little Word". I had previously used the trailer feature in iMovie and chose to get a little more experience with that in sharing my OLW.
The second maker task was to show what our "Maker's Space" is. I wrote about that on Day 10 of the SOL challenge with a post titled, "My Maker Space". To share my space, I chose to use the Pic Collage app, which I downloaded on my iPad.
Today's task was "Lift a Line From Literature", in which we were to find a quote and then once again choose a way to share it. First, I chose the line "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be." from Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. I love this book. I read it to each of my three boys when they were small. As many parents will tell you, it's nearly impossible to make it through a reading of this book without tearing up. In fact, when we read Robert Munsch books in my first grade classroom, I won't read this one aloud because I know that I can't make it through a reading without crying.
I decided to "app smash" a familiar and an unfamiliar app to create my make. I first used Pic Collage once again to alter and enhance my photograph and put it on a solid color background. After saving the image on my iPad's camera roll, I imported the image into an app I discovered called PhotoPOP! where I added the text. When I was done, the final project was saved as an image to my camera roll.
I am really liking the different things that I can do with Pic Collage. While it was neat to play with another new app, the thing I didn't like about PhotoPOP! is that once you finish and save a project, you can't go back and work on it anymore. I'm pretty proud of my finished project, which is a picture of me with my youngest son when he was four years old, with the quote below it. If you've never done something like this, I recommend taking on the challenge.
