Oh the places you could go…

Background

My next design assignment is “What Are You Missing Nearby” which is worth 3 stars. For this assignment I have to decide on 4 locations close by to include in my collage. For this I plan to do both buildings and nature. The first location I decided on was Great Falls Park located off of the Potomac River. I chose this location because my mother has always wanted to take me, my siblings, and our dog there for a walk but I have yet to go so I thought this would give me a good opportunity to look into it. My next location is the Manassas National Battlefield Park which was the site for battles during the Civil War. This location gives a great chance for everyone to learn about our state’s history. Close by is Old Town Manassas which features an outdoor iceskating rink, a variety of restaurants, and events year round. My final location is Ferry Farm which was George Washington’s boyhood home. Here you can walk along the river, see what life was like in the 1700s, and go on informational tours.

Process

For this collage I will be using the same program that I used in a previous blog post on different facial expressions. To start off the collage I open up the program Photo Collage Maker- CollageFactory Free available on the iTunes App Store. I then choose “Free Style 4-1” from the top right of the page and press “ok”.

Next click the box with a green plus sign at the bottom left of the page and select the pictures you want to use. After this you can click the images and drag them into the desired boxes. I also left most of the options on the left the same except for changing the width to 0.

To add the text I pressed button with a T on it at the top right of the page. Then press add text which places a box on the image and allows you to adjust the font size, color, and style.

My Creation

Here is my final collage. It features all 4 of the locations discussed earlier with their respective names overtop the image. This would be a good starting point of interesting places to visit for those living in Northern Virginia.
