Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #82- Alice In Wonderland


Good Morning Everyone and welcome to the 82nd Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge- where every week we create a card, 3D project etc. inspired by a different movie. This week we HAD to pick Alice in Wonderland (it was just released on June 2nd) and if you haven't seen it - it is really simply AMAZING!!! I love TIm Burton - and perhaps you all might know of my LOVE (okay slight infatuation with Johnny Depp) and so I couldn't wait to watch this movie when it came in theaters. I loved Tim Burton's vision - the man just made Wonderland come to life! For our challenge requirement - we decided to be a little open ended and decided that the challenge requirement should be just to go wild and "create something out of the box" - that could be anything at all that inspires you from Wonderland - something that goes outside of the traditional card - whatever you would like! So for my creation today - my inspiration came from a few different places:


1. from the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter)'s colors: I simply LOVE the bright right against that turquoise - And the way Tim Burton shot her in the movie so that her head was just huge - simply brilliant!
2. from the quote that Alice's father says to her - and that she then says to herself before she slays the Jabberwocky - to paraphrase"I try to believe in at least 6 impossible things before breakfast."
3. The mirror in the jewelry box represents that looking within journey that Alice goes through as she realizes that her "muchness" has not gone - and that she can create her own future - forge her own path - she comes into herself - just as the caterpillar goes within himself only to emerge as a beautiful butterfly - which she does - so this little box that I created was in homage to Alice's journey - and to everyday start with thinking about 6 impossible things that you want to make happen - and well, the might come true!

I painted the box with the colors of the Red Queen and attached the sentiment with a little bit of bling - its hard to take a picture of the mirror -
Thanks so much for stopping by today - I really hope you play - this challenge is such a fun one - AND there is also BLOG CANDY!! So hop on over to the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge Blog and check it all out!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
