We are SOOOO excited today to feature the three time Oscar Winning movie: Roman Holiday as our movie for today's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! You know we love the one and only Audrey Hepburn - whose grace, style and elegance inspires even to this day! Roman Holiday was created in 19553 and stars Audrey as Princess Anne, a princess who according to ImDB is a "a bored and sheltered princess (who) escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome." The American newsman is played by Gregory Peck - and the way they fall in love - and also the way the end the movie is simply sweet.
This week's Challenge Requirement:
We love Audrey's grace and elegance and so for this week's Challenge Requirement - we thought to add a touch of elegance to your cards by adding some pearls (these can be liquid pearls ;) or pearl bling, or pearl brads - anything pearly that you would like to add!
Sankari's Card(s) Inspired by the movie: Roman Holiday
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie - it has Audrey and Gregory Peck!!! Who couldn't love that!!!?!!! I got so inspired that I made two cards!!! The first card is inspired by the scene where Audrey and Gregory take a ride around Rome in the Vespa scene - I LOVE this scene because of the pure happiness on Audrey's face as she lets down her "princess" role and becomes just a "girl" for the day - Isn't this picture of pure happiness on her face - just the loveliest!!!!
I used the Mojo Sketch #112 from the awesome Juleeeee Tilman - I love this sketch and I couldn't wait to use Julee's beautiful stamp set: Wishing You for this card - and choose to pair the "Wishing you" part of the sentiment with the sentiment: "a day filled with happiness" - because it just perfectly captures the feeling of the beautiful day that Audrey and Gregory Peck spend together - my favorite scene is the "Mouth of Truth" scene - soooo cute! I loved the Vespa scene - I downloaded this Vespa image and then I matted it and added dimensionals to give it some pop :) Here is my card inspired by all of those elements:
I also couldn't stop making just one card - here is another sneak peek that I made inspired by Princess Ann wanting to escape being a princess for a little while - hop on over to my blog to see the rest :)
There are so many fun places in this movie for inspiration - from the costumes, to the dialogue, to the characters, to the different scenes. I hope that this movie inspires you and that you play along with us!!!!
Thank you all for being part of our Cinema Family!! :)
Brooke's Projects Inspired by the movie: Roman Holiday
This project is inspired by the colors or rome and the influence of pearls...
While I was browsing one of my favorite craft blogs I saw a similar necklace and had to make one for my self... I used some of my quilt scraps.. This was a great project to make while watching a movie or two..
I have one more project on my blog inspired by the black and white portion of the movie...
so come visit me here.
What can we say it's AUDREY... You know we love that girl.... It's has been sooo long since we have done an AUDREY movie that we were just inspired to do another... My projects are done... How ever they need to have a photo in daylight they are to large for my little Ott light to even make a difference... If you don't see them posted on your first visit please check back. I will try sooo very hard so squeeze them in before I leave town... My projects are not cards.. So don't forget that you can think outside the box here on Cinema Saturday and explore you creative side..
I love the premise of this movie... Princess Ann just want's to be a everyday girl.. She wants to just be able to live and do as she wished with out all the restrictions and regiment that is part of her life... This is just a delightful movie... I can't wait to be able to watch it again from start to finish...
And oh the Irony... The Princess was right there under his nose the whole time.. .Staying at his place sleeping in his bed... You will just have to watch the movie to see all the adventure she has while living a life NOT as the princess...
Can't wait to see what you all create this week...THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE LOVE YOU HAVE SENT OUR WAY... You all are so sweet
