The Notebook by Mandy

Happy Hello Friends!
Mandy here sharing my design team project based on the super fun challenge hosted by Kay~
I was undecided which movie I wanted to go with but my top two are "The Notebook" and "The Horse Whisperer".....both romantic drama's.  I decided to go with "The Notebook".....I can't watch either movie without shedding some tears....It doesn't matter how many times I watch them....hehe
I decided to create a mixed media canvas filled with many textures and details~
The photo copies are printed from my ink jet printer....I used craft paper behind both photo's and raised them off of the canvas.....I made sure I didn't get any water/misting/paint on the photo images...
I used two different photo images from the movie and I wanted to go with one larger than the other....
I added some sponsored goodies from the Gauche Alchemy kit~ (punchinella and vintage envelope/papers)
The chipboard piece "two become one" is from our sponsor:
I added some stamp work using brown ink and stamps from our sponsor:
Here is close-up's of the quote from the movie:
So true~
Below is the challenge details! You still have time to get your project completed!
Favorite Movie or TV Show June Challenge hosted by Kay
Your project must be centered around your favorite movie or TV show & must consist of more than one photo.  You can use the same photo twice or use different photos--the choice is yours.  If you just can't pick one movie or TV show--then feel free to center your project on your favorite actor or actress, this counts as well.

Television has evolved greatly since it was first introduced as has the movies.  We've come a long way from the silent films of the 1920's.  Some may say that we've gone a bit overboard with the amount of computer animation & technology that composes many of the action films of today.  However, whether you prefer the modern day film or a classic black & white movie--we all have our faves. 

Sitcoms and/or TV shows have become part of our everyday day lives.  From 'I Love Lucy' to 'Three's Company' to 'The Walking Dead'--there are countless of TV shows with a variety of themes & let's not forget all those countless reality shows.  'I Wanna Marry Prince Harry' comes to mind as a recent reality show that makes me wanna pick up a good ol' fashioned book!  But that will be a theme for another challenge!  :-)

 I'm looking forward to seeing all of your favorite movies/TV Shows, actors or actresses!  I hope you will all have fun with this challenge.

Now onto the prizes for this month.  There are some fabulous ones up for grabs, amongst them a voucher from Kay's Etsy shop--just remember, you gotta be in it to win it!

Gauche Alchemy is for those that create outside of the box, those that create inside of the box and those that tear the box a new one…

Discover the secret that every great altered artist, scrapbooker, cardmaker, memory-keeper and mixed media artist knows. Whether you are new to the process or have already discovered the joy and flexibility inherent in a varied stash of inspiring supplies, Gauche Alchemy is here to feed your art and soul – a friendly push from your personal muse!

Gauche Alchemy specializes in kits filled to the brim with fabulous finds and artistic goodness. If your addiction is vintage ephemera, found objects,
beautiful fabric, trendy paper or unique embellishments, we’re here to enable you – oh yeah! Our kits are designed to make you laugh, question social convention and remind us of our past (the good, the bad, the whimsical – even the downright kitschy).

Each kit is designed to jostle your creativity with unique tidbits, coordinated colors and delicious textures. If you are unaccustomed to working with our unique offerings, GOOD! Our goal is to encourage different ways of thinking about the art that is all around us. We are big fans of "upcycling" and hope to encourage others to join us on our path to "recycle, reuse, repurpose!"

We are a team of creative women who cannot image their world without
paper, glue and the creative process. Scrapbooking is our passion and we
love to share our passion with other scrapbookers. For this reason, 7
Dots Studio exists. The quality of our products is our top priority. Our
collections are made from thick (250gsm), acid-free, lignin-free,
archival scrapbooking paper. We also offer high quality cardstock

Kay's Kreative Korner was opened in 2009. It began simply as a way of sharing a few of my handmade items. I opened my shop with a couple of hand stamped cards, butterflies & a few pre-made scrapbook pages. Within a year, I stopped making cards and decided to concentrate on specific embellishments--I went with the butterfly. I've always admired the butterfly & what it symbolizes. Change, transformation, a new start, beginnings...with this concept I started making scrapbook embellishments based on existing butterflies from all around the world as well as butterflies that I have designed myself. Each butterfly is hand cut & carefully assembled by me.

Within a few months I started to add transparent 'Glass' butterflies which are clear in nature but add a very bold & unique touch to any crafty project. My latest creations are the 'Rose' butterfly collection which are butterflies with roses on their wings & the 'Message on Wings' butterfly collection with sentiments printed on their wings that can be personalized.

In addition to the butterflies I specialize in vines & beaded flowers. Each item is handmade with much TLC and careful precision. My greatest reward is seeing how others use my embellishments on their own projects & pages or to decorate a special occasion.
