So, here it is. My final project for a Twilight Tuesday challenge. I'm sad to see the challenges stop, but with all of the stamps and digis I have that are Twilight themed I'm sure you'll see more Twilight projects from me from time to time in the future.;) Here's the final challenge:
"Our challenge theme???? ”Love of books, the printed words on a page” since that is what brought us all together.
Creative portion: Create a project that uses printed text: a page from a magazine, book, dictionary, etc. within your project, as the background or focal point.
Comment Portion: I love to read the newspaper online but nothing beats a printed newspaper on Sunday mornings. And no matter how hard I try, I can’t abandon books (hardcover, softcover, or paperback) to a digital reader. Are you totally digital or do you prefer a good old fashioned printed page in your hands?”
Here's my card...
And a better look at the special couple...(click on any image to see it larger)
Cardstock Bazzill Basics. Apple paper from Paper Pizazz. Stamp and Digi Stamp from The Greeting Farm. Copics and one Prismacolor marker were used to color the stamps.(Thank you, Jen, for the Edward hair tutorial!!) Stardust Stickles on "Bella's" eyeshadow and button. The paper with the words printed on it was from a journal of mine, I just tore out a page for this.
I decided to use a bunch of quotes that I enjoy from Bella and Edward as the printed background. The little flowers have some of the quotes printed on them, too. I could have filled pages with the quotes I enjoy from the books, but I had to limit myself to just a few here.:)
As for the comment portion...I prefer a real book to digital books. I like the feeling of holding a book in my hands. I like the smell of the paper and ink. I feel more connected to the story and characters when it's an actual physical book. I will occasionally read a short story on the computer, but I have trouble focusing on the screen without it drying out my eyes. I don't mind an audio book from time to time, but I tend to let my mind wander when someone else is reading.
Thank you so much for visiting!
