Happy Wednesday everyone! This week over at The Sisterhood of Crafters we have a fun challenge for you all. We had to make a project based around your favorite book or movie. At first I was a bit stumped because I knew what I wanted to do but I wasn't sure how I would do it. I was gonna cheat and just make something easy but I stuck to my guns and tried to pull something out of my crafty hat. I am not one for going to the movies, the last one I saw was CARS with my son years ago. I love to watch them on TV when I am able and these days I don't get much time to watch the tube.
Growing up me and my sisters loved loved loved the movie GOONIES. I just recently bought it on DVD for my sister for Christmas. It was just our thing. We even made a map and went on our own treasure hunt. This movie has so many fond memories that I just had to do it besides that was the first one that popped into my head. Once I started on this project I almost aborted it and started another one because I was like OOHHH I could do that...or that. This is a challenge that you can honestly have weekly because there are so many possibilities.
So I searched thru my stash and tried to come up with a scene with my favorite part. When they went down those cave slides into the water and found One Eyed Willie's ship..OMG I wanted to find a cave so bad after that!!!! And when he turned the ships helm and all heck broke loose well that is why I had to include the helm on my card ( I guess that is what the steering wheel :) of the ship is called!). I made it into an easel card to fit the challenge over at
TotallyPaperCrafts and I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers.
It's a big card!! I used lots of dimensional dots to give it some ..well Dimension!
