TTIC #30, Ballet studio scene

Dani gave us the challenge this week on Twilight Tuesday to make something inspired by the Ballet studio scene in the twilight book and movie. Very much a challenge.... took me a while to get going, but it helped that the TT team gave a bunch of awesome samples!!

This is challenge #30! congrats ladies thats a lot of challenges and hard work!!

Craft Portion: Create a project that shows your favorite part(s) of the Ballet Studio Scene.

Comment Portion: How do you feel about this scene from Twilight. Was it not scary enough? Do you think Edward made the right decision to keep Bella from turning?

So I have to say MY favorite thing about this scene in the movie is the backgound song, let me sign... I love roberts vocals, his voice is mesmerizing and haunts me. so that combined with the flashbacks in the movie was an awesome addition to Twilight and this scene. If bella would of turned then there would of been SO much missed in the future, sure Bella would of been happy but Edward would be sulky and blame himself still and it would be hard to look past that without a way for Edward to "take away" this part of her life. and think of what we the readers would of missed in future books. I dont feel the scene was very scary and little things bug me between the book and script.

I had the song playing back to back for a long time getting the feelings before I made this card... could never love it any less!
SO my card is a tribute to that.

I also went through this chapter again and picked the colors that were mentioned in Twilight, the yellow of the sun as she ran to the studio- so saffron, the dark of the room-Basic Gray, the hot pink sign on the door-pretty in pink, the blue of the TV when the video was shut off- ballet blue and red for the blood that was spilled-riding hood red.

I used rhinestones to be the mirror broken in pieces along the side of my card. I wrote in pen let me sign on the pink panel and the sentiment below says I love you. There was a huge amount of love involved in that scene for Edward to do what he did....

The white panel is stamped with argyle heart in riding hood red and distressed with basic black ink and sponged with more red.

Stamps Used: Argyle Heart-unity stamp company
Papers Used: paper pack 2 hostess, whisper white SU
Ink Used: basic black, riding hood red
Acessories Used: Rhinestones
