Day Three (Wednesday April 24th): Infographic
There are many ways of conveying information on a blog; text and images being the two most widely used. Many infographics combine both these elements to provide a visual way of presenting text information. Make your own infogaphic (no fancy imaging software needed, you can draw it on paper and photograph it if you want) to convey any element of your craft(s). It can be just for fun or a thoroughly researched presentation of an idea/finding.
I made my infogram using Tagxedo. I enjoyed designing it, choosing the colors and shape. However, I could not get it to download in any way, so in the end I just took a screenshot. I really didn't have the time or interest to investigate why it wouldn't download because I don't think I'll be using a ton of infograms in the future. It was fun to do it today, but I didn't fall in love with the task. I had the most fun with the theme of it: Knit and Crochet Abbreviations. When learning to knit or crochet, it's like learning a new language. My infogram shows most, but not all, of the many knit and crochet abbreviations. I am happy to say that I knew what most of them meant...most of the crochet abbreviations, anyway...the knitting ones I still have a ways to go!
