Good Morning Everyone,
Are you all experiencign any spring weather yet? If not, don't despair, here is an absolute fun-tabulous movie that will totally put the spring in your steps and have you dancing in no time.!
Every week, Brooke and I do the Cinema Saturday challenge, where have fun picking a movie from which to draw inspiration from which to draw inspiration from in making a card, LO or scrapbook page. This week's movie choice is Singing in the Rain!
I am just in love with the dance moves and the absolute delight that Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor bring to the screen! I had a smile on my face the whole time - I loved the comedic lines, the songs, the dances, the outfits and the colors! What a great movie!!!
My favorite song is the last one entitled "Lucky Star" - one of the lines from this song reads:"You are my lucky Star" So that is what I used as my starting point for the card. You can WATCH the song right here. I just loved the sweetness and softness of this song - and so I made a card inspired by this song - but used the colors in the title dance song Singing in the Rain.The requirement this week was to use the water element into your card.
I used Kazan's beautiful sketch #21 - I seriously am amazed by the creations that Laura and Kazan create each week and also the beautiful creations of their awesome Design Team - please check out their awesome sketch challenge blog and join in on the fun! I rotated Kazan's sketch 90 degrees clockwise - and in the center stamped: You are my lucky star - which is a line from the last song of the movie.
Paper: All paper from the Paper Company - I used some opalescent gift wrap paper over one sheet to give the watery illusion...
Ink: Taken with Teal SU!
Accessories: Creative Memories Star punch, Liquid Pearls, corner rounder, Stardust stickles
My daughter was not feeling well last night - and I don't think I slept more than an hour... I stole away this morning to quickly make my card -- and interestingly enough - it has been raining - can you see the drops on the window? It totally made me want to go out and sing in the rain - except that its freezing :)
Hope you play along with us - you can check out more details at our Cinema Saturday blog.
Lots of sunny hugs,
PS - Here is some interesting trivia from IMdB - did you know that Gene Kelly had a 103 degree fever when he danced to the song Singing in the Rain? He insited upon one take - and that was all that it took! The rain in the The Singing in the Rain dance/ scene was a mix of water and milk - so that it would show up better on the screen (although it caused Gene Kelly's wool coat to shrink in the process! You can read more of these trivia points here - and if you haven't seen this movie yet - the mastery, the spunk, the dance - is a complete delight - and is sure to bring a smile to your faces!!!
