Heres a little invoice for ya

For this design assignment I had to create an invoice for someone else and I decided to do mine using Amanda Layton’s character Sylvia Stone. I based it off my character helping ruin a mans life for Sylvia since she does not really do all that killing business. I seduced the man and went to dinner and put special injections into his food to make him start feeling weird and have weird side effects that will stay with him for the rest of his life. Side note: this guy was not in either of our characters stories, I just used the basics of both of our characters to come up with something that could relate to both characters.

I made this invoice by going onto Word and finding a template for invoices. From there I edited the information at the top right to make it my characters and then I just input the details in the invoice to finish it off.

Storrrrrrrrry timeeeeeeee.

For this assignment you had to use Google Maps to create a story and for this I not only used Kendall Parker’s character to work with I also worked on this assignment with Kendall. We did our story basing the backgrounds of both of our characters and it made it pretty easy since our characters are related and that we used them in our radio show. The plot to this story map we made was that my character( Margaret) is dead and her granddaughter( Julia) is going to visit her grave but really she is going as a cover up for her second profession. She was really sent there to kill a man hired by his wife but visiting all of my character’s locations (grave, home, work place) is the perfect coverup when she comes back to Chicago with a painting done by her grandmother Margaret. To do this project we obviously used Google Maps but we had to pin the location and then draw a line from that place to the next. For the main pinned location we described what was there and for each of the lines we explained what happened or was going to happen at the next location. We did add photos for most of the locations to go with the story. I hope you guys enjoy our story and pictures :) Story Map

 

 

ken n iP.S. Don’t Kendall and I just look so studious in the Convergence Center ;)

Pop Quiz Granddaughter and Grandma edition!

For this assignment I made a quiz pertaining to the lives of my character and Kendall Parker’s character Julia James, who happens to be my granddaughter! I have 10 questions on the quiz 5 for each of the character’s lives which should be simple relating to our stories. I created my quiz on a website called onlinequizcreator.com which allowed me to create a free account and create my quiz. I was able to come up with the questions by looking at Kendall’s blog post and reading about her character plus I knew some of the information from doing the radio show together. If you want to take my quiz and see if you know our characters here you go: Julia and Margaret Quiz

This was actually kind of fun to do because I enjoyed doing a post with my granddaughter ;)

What’s going on ?

This is my short story created by sound effects about my character Margaret Pinuat, I hope you enjoy:

In this story created by sound effects I used 10 different sounds. I used:

  • Foot steps in the woods
  • Front door opening
  • Whisking batter
  • Oven opening and closing
  • Man eating
  • Man choking
  • Phone dialing
  • Police sirens
  • Woman crying
  • Rain

These different sounds go along with my character because these are the sounds used when she kills her husband. It starts with her going to the woods to grab some poisonous berries. Then she comes home and starts making the batter for her cake. Throws it in the oven and then when it comes out she serves it to her husband for dessert, he thinks it is just any old cake but comes to find out that it is poisoned, before he could do anything he starts choking. With her plan working perfectly, she calls the cops in distress making it seem like he is having a heart attack. The cops are close to the house and when they come in they find her crying over his dead body. Not to make the story any more gloomy of course it has been raining the whole day!

Hope you can picture that story with the sound effects used!

Post It- Margaret Style

To do list -MP

 

I did the Post It Visual Assignment for my character Margaret Pinualt and her husband Mathieu. On the Pink sticky note is something that Mathieu came up with when they got married since they were both so successful and its just a reminder they have in their kitchen. The Green sticky note is Mathieu’s saying on his business card, so he has it hanging up in the mostly every room of the house. The Purple sticky note is Margaret’s motto in life. The Yellow post it is her grocery list and if you look carefully those are all the ingredients used in killing Mathieu.(Sneaky Sneaky) Lastly, the blue post it is her to do list for the day and if you notice it is the same things she does on the day she planned to kill her husband. The setting of these post its are at their house, the to do list and grocery list are based on the day she killed her husband but made it look like any other day by throwing in picking up her dress and cleaning the house, also getting the wine because that way her husband knows there is a special occasion but does not know it is for his own death.

I did my Post-Its on Paint for Macbook because that worked best and I just drew the squares then colored them in with a specific color. I used all those things on my post it notes that were part of facts and information given in other assignments based on my character. I couldn’t add much more because that information hasn’t ben given yet!

From the past!

haa

This image is of Margaret Pinault and Mathieu Gaston in front of their home in France. Mathieu was a millionaire art collector and Margaret was a painter herself. This was at the beginning of their marriage when they just moved into their new home. Margaret looks sad because this was the first time that Mathieu had hit her, he hit her because he thought her paintings were not god enough. She was upset because she knew they had pictures the next day and she was forced to smile and act happy but you can see it on her face that she was not. This was the beginning to the end of their relationship…

Margaret Pinault

Margaret Pinault was born on February 17, 1921 in Danain, France. Most people know her as “The Black Widow”. Born to Pierre and Camille Pinault, Margaret was an only child. Her father worked in the factories in the city of Paris, a long two hour commute each way. Camille was a teacher until Margaret was born. Camille then became a house wife and watched over Margaret until she started school and finally returned back to teaching once again.

Margaret always was quiet but flirty and outgoing when she wanted to be. She was skinny and petite, at 5’7″, and always had black somewhere in her outfit. With blue eyes and soft black hair, boys were always intrigued by her but Margaret was very picky and rarely dated throughout her teenage years.

After high school, Margaret moved into the city and began working multiple jobs to afford her life. She was a waitress, seamstress, and secretary all at once while barely making ends meet. In her rare free time, Margaret loved to draw. She drew on anything she could get her hands on. One day, an art collector came into her coffee shop and saw her drawing. As he was so blown away by her talent, he immediately offered her a job as an artist and offered her space to present her art at his studio . Margaret, shocked and overwhelmed, quit all of her jobs and went to work for this mystery art collector.

Margaret and the mystery art collector, named Mathieu Gaston, the millionaire art collector, entered a whirlwind romance and quickly wed without her parent’s permission or approval. Margaret was blind with love so she couldn’t see the abusive nature that took over their relationship soon after the wedding. Mathieu was controlling and manipulative over Margaret. One day, in a fit of rage, Mathieu destroyed two of Margaret’s brand new pieces, leaving her in tears. That was the breaking point: Margaret had had enough. Margaret goes into the woods and discovers ivy berries, berries that are lethal when consumed. So, that night for desert, Margaret makes a fruit torte cake with the ivy berries mixed in. She watches him devour the first bite and within seconds, he is on the floor, dead. Margaret then calls the police, claiming that Mathieu has had a heart attack. When the police arrive, Margaret is sobbing next to her husband’s corpse.

Margaret worked hard to have a good image at her husband’s funeral later that week, crying constantly and being thankful for everyone’s condolences. Not more than a month later, Margaret is at a bar, watching Jean Gerrard, owner of the country’s most expensive vineyard. She waits to make her move and….
