It was Really an Enchanted Rose

I chose this assignment, Putting Disney into Focus, because I love Disney! Who doesn’t?!

I chose the Rose from Beauty and the Beast because Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie and I believe that the Rose is used as a symbol of love, growth, and change (As a Romantic, I value these very highly, haha). As the rose reaches it’s end of life, the Beast grows, learns to love and how to be loved, and he changes not only from a beast to man but from a selfish and spoiled boy into a caring and giving man.

I decided to not only to blur the background, which took forever to figure out how to do, but also to change the color scheme so the only color in the picture is the Red Rose itself, everything else in the picture is grey. I decided to do this to not only focus on the rose but to highlight it’s significance to me and the movie.

These pics range from blur and color change, to just blur, to the original picture.


I am also adding the website and instructions I used to complete the blurring effect.

I hope others have an easier time with this than I did! Haha, I tried three different ways to blur but this website,, was the easiest and best way.

  1. Nice write up. Two things, though, that you always need to remember when completing an assignment from the ds106 Assignment Bank:

    1. Always include a link back to the assignment’s page somewhere in your post. I would recommend turning the title of the assignment in your first sentence into a link to

    2. Always include the tags that are included in the assignment instructions. When you’re writing/editing a post, there is a box in the right-hand sidebar labeled “tags.” For this assignment, there are two tags you need to add: VisualAssignments, VisualAssignments1026. This will guarantee that your completed work shows up on the assignment page in the Assignment Bank, ensuring that others will see (and learn from!) your work.
