Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #32 - Twilight





We had a total blast guessing the movie last night with you! And seriously - you guys are amazing with your guessing ability. This week we are so excited to feature the movie: Twilight!!! This movie is based on the insanely popular book saga by Stephanie Meyers and since its release the book/movie has totally created a phenomenon in the popular culture. Stephanie Meyer's has totally created a whole new pop culture with her series, similar to the fan culture that JK Rowling created with the Harry Potter series (and interestingly enough, Robert Pattinson who plays Edward Cullen in Twilight, played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter IV. (I feel like we should dedicate this movie to one of our challenge participants: Erica - who has been guessing this movie for the past few cinema challenges! Erica - this one is for you!)

The requirement this week is a fun one:
to use the colors Red and Black in your card with Sparkles!!
You are not limited to these two colors -and have fun with adding some sparkle to your card!
So have fun and enjoy!

Sankari's Card Inspired by the movie: Twilight

I had so much fun making a card this week! I know that we can use other colors other than black and red - but I went with these two colors and added some sparkley bling. I loved the cover of the book with the apple - and the symbols that the apple conjures up is an interesting one. According to WikiAnswers: in the movie Twilight: the apple stands for the forbidden fruit - Bella is the fruit and her blood is forbidden to Edward. The whole notion of love transcending different forbidden interactions (vampire/human, etc.) was something that is just immemorial. They are both the apple of each other's eye - and so even though their love is forbidden - the purity of the love transcends any social convention and allows the walls that have been built up in their hearts to crumble.

According to the author of the book Twilight, Stephanie Meyer, the apple for her represents the following: "The apple on the cover of Twilight represents "forbidden fruit." I used the scripture from Genesis (located just after the table of contents) because I loved the phrase "the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil." Isn't this exactly what Bella ends up with? A working knowledge of what good is, and what evil is. The nice thing about the apple is it has so many symbolic roots. You've got the apple in Snow White, one bite and you're frozen forever in a state of not-quite-death... Then you have Paris and the golden apple in Greek mythology—look how much trouble that started. Apples are quite the versatile fruit. In the end, I love the beautiful simplicity of the picture. To me it says: choice." -Stephenie Meyer


It was so much fun to make this card and watch the movie at the same time - and at the same time - reading all of your guesses!! I feel so lucky to be part of this blog challenge and have this chance to get to know you!!! Thank you all!!!

For more information about this card you can check out some of the details on my blog :)!
Lots of hugs and sunny smiles!!
Sankari :)

I was having computer problems so I didn't get to guess or find out what the movie was until today. I was so happy, I read the book while on planes on vacation! Everyone's art is amazing, as usual!

Jacqui said...

this looks like fun fun fun!! Diana Gibbs (My Sister) shared this link with me. I hope to participate in some challenges. Those sneak peeks are hard! I've seen the Twilight movie well..lets just say I own it and I like to stamp by it...so I've seen it a few times....but I'm not certain I would have been able to figure out those sneak peeks!!
thanks for having such a creative blog!

Sankari W. said...

Libby Hickson said...

I just looked at everyone's cards so far - they are awesome!!! But I can't believe I'm the only person to actually use a vampire stamp - that's too funny. I am such a vampire loving fool! :-)

Carol Dunstan said...

I've finally got my card up! I do have other ideas but I'm not sure how to work black, red and sparkles into them so I am not going to rush them for this week. Will check out everyone else's in the morning, I'm rather tired tonight. Nice to see so many participants this week :)

PS my word verification is "aging"!

Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.
