Hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. I’ve spent most of the day searching for a piece of paper. Not a nice piece of patterned paper, but an important, legal piece of paper. I’ve decided to stop looking for it, in the hope that I’ll remember what I did with it in the first place. I have no idea why it isn’t with the other papers. Grrrrrr.
On Friday I was asked to host the new Tilda challenge at DC. After panicking for a few minutes I was ready to say no when I remembered that tonight the Academy Awards are happening in Hollywood, so I decided the challenge would be to use Tilda to illustrate a film & you could be as obvious or as obscure as you wanted. My attempt ended up a little more obscure than I originally intended, but I’m happy to say, quite a few people guessed the film correctly.
- C5 white card
- Backing paper – Imaginisce Swweeet Spots
- Patterned paper – Seven Gypsies St Martin
- Navy cardstock & white tissue paper – from my stash
- Ribbons – Crafty Ribbons
- Whispers pens
- WH Smith watercolour pencils
- White gel pen
- Anita’s 3D Gloss
- Papermania flowers, star brad, adhesive gems
- Rose – from my stash
- Brilliance ink – Starlite Silver
- Silver embossing powder
- Sentiment – Studio g clear stamps
So, have you guessed the film?! 😉 Here are the clues…………..
- American film
- Won Best Picture Oscar in the ’90’s
- Stars my favourite actor – he won the Best Actor Oscar for his role in this film
- Name of the rose is also the name of the film
- Torn tissue paper symbolises a plastic bag
- Sentiment – what the main character did
Got it? It’s ‘American Beauty’. I have seen it countless times & I still love it, although I wish the ending was different 😉 (no spoilers in case someone who reads this hasn’t seen the film!) . Kevin Spacey was perfect as Lester Burnham, IMO & Alan Ball wrote a great screenplay. She doesn’t know it yet – well, she will when she reads this! – but I’m sending this card to Jen. She’s a Spacey fan too, so I think she’ll like it.
Right, I’m off to visit the blogs on my list & also to think about the Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge. It’s a sketch this week – thank goodness! No ‘difficult’ colours to worry about. 🙂 A big thank you to everyone who left comments on my card yesterday.
See you all tomorrow hopefully. Love & light.
