Welcome Everyone to our 68th Cinema Challenge - where this week we are featuring the Oscar nominated 2002 movie: Spider-man! We thought we needed something different from all the romance, and romantic tragedies that we have done lately - so how about an action packed movie? The challenge requirement is to use either a little bit or a lot of a transparency sheet or acetate (it doesn't have to be the whole card - it could just be a little bit). There are a lot of themes from this movie: being a hero, a superhero, coming into your own powers, friendship, loyalty, romance (Spidy and MJ) etc. The main thing is to have fun! (and shhh! you can watch the whole movie on youTube in 10min segments!) Here is a trailer for your viewing pleasure:
Brooke's Card inspired by the movie: Spiderman
Did we all grow up with this movie and or guy or what.. I even remember watching Spiderman back in the day when he only spoke in though bubbles on the original "Electric Company" back in the "70's" yikes... I really loved this challenge I new weeks ago that I was going to make a floating spider.. I do have another card in mind as well. Hope I get it done so I can share.. I am so glad to have the chance to make a card or 2 for boys to have on hand:
Spiderman, Spiderman, Does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, Catches thieves just like Flies. Look out! Here comes the Spiderman!
The of the aspect of the Spiderman movies I like is watching Peter Parker struggle between having confidence and finding the strength to be a Hero... It reminds us all about our struggle between good and bad choices..
Hope you all enjoy the show/challenge.
Sankari's Card inspired by the movie: Spiderman
I grew up reading the Spidy comic books and was excited to see the comic book come to life in the big screen. I think my most favorite part of the movie is where he is just coming into himself and recognizing his powers. I love the way he tries to live the way his uncle inspired him to and how he recognizes his strengths, his responsibilities and how he manages his new found spidy power. I made this card inspired by the "web" and was going to make it blue - but somehow - I was feeling green :) The sentiment is inspired by Parker's struggle to be figure out "who" he really is and to fully embrace his new found powers. I used some "fun-fur" ribbon because it reminded me of the little "grippy" things on his fingers that he uses to climb buildings :)
I cut little bits of acetate and alternated them on my "kind of a web" part of the card (its so hard to take a picture of acetate!). I had a lot of fun making this crazy card and hope you will join us this week!!
