TTIC #35 Renesmee

Spoiler Alert!!! If you did not read Breaking Dawn, then please DO NOT look at this post!!! It will give too much awaIMG_4814y!!!

It’s time for another Twilight Tuesday Challenge! This week’s challenge is brought to us by Jacquie, one of my fellow Guest Designers!

Today's challenge is taken from Breaking Dawn, we learn that Bella is pregnant and she makes it through the birth and we meet her and Edward's baby, Renesmee. She is amazingly talented, gorgeous and immediately becomes the focus of ALL the main characters in an individual way.
Renesmee is half vampire/ half human, she has the gift of being able to transmit her thoughts through her touch. She grows fast and as we find out later in the book she will stop growing at 15 and she is immortal. We learn that Jacob has imprinted on her also. She shimmers in the sun, has her mothers brown eyes, Charlie’s curly hair, likes blood over food, she learns at an amazingly fast pace and easily wins over anyone that comes near her. I love how she is so charismatic, I love her character!
"She's like nothing else in the world," he told me... Bella Swan Breaking Dawn pg. 428
"The stranger-child in Rosalie's arms had to be weeks, if not months, old...Her shiny bronze-colored hair fell in ringlets past her shoulders. Her chocolate brown eyes examined me with an interest that was not at all childlike: it was adult, aware and intelligent"....Bella Swan Breaking Dawn pg. 438
Challenge Portion: There are so many options for this challenge, you can focus on the relationship between Renesmee and Bella, Edward, Jacob, Charlie, Rosalie, Aro. You can think of her powers, or just her looks. Anything goes!!
Comment Portion: She has so much power over everyone right away, is there anything or anyone that has pulled you in so swiftly, a friend, a spouse? Do you know a sweet little girl like Nessie without the being half vampire of course. Tell us a little about it!

As always, our Design Team has fantastic projects to display for this week’s challenge – please go and check us all out!

Yes folks, I did it. Well, I didn’t really do it… Gene did it and the TTIC girls helped a lot. I actually got the actual post up! Go me! I mean… us!!!

So, here is the story about what I made. First, I have to say that it’s been a long time since I sat down to draw anything, but I really wanted to do something different from a layout or a card. So I came up with this. In Twilight, Edward and Bella reference themselves as the “Lion falling in love with the Lamb.” And in Breaking Dawn, Bella gives birth to Renesmee who is nicknamed (to Bella’s dismay) Nessie. So, I decided to draw a lion, a lamb, and Nessie. The Loch Ness Monster. I had seen a t-shirt that had a silhouette of the 3 animals, so I wanted to make mine different, of course. I wanted to do something cute and cartoonie, not realistic. I used pencil and watercolor marker for the piece. I think it’s cute. I’m happy with it.

For the comment portion…of course I could tell you about how I was instantly taken by my kids, but any mom could tel that story. I’ll tell you about a little girl that won me over as soon as I met her. Her name was Sarah, I met her when she was 6 and I was working at Michaels. I don’t remember the circumstances anymore, all I remember was falling in love with this girl instantly. I needed to be around her, to hang out with her, to build a relationship with her. It was so weird! What was great was that she really liked me to. She would hang out with me at my floral design counter (because her mom would bring her to visit me), because we had instantly bonded. I loved this little girl. Loved her so much that I would actually tear up when I saw her coming to me. So weird for me. I wanted this little girl as my own child. She was so smart, funny and creative. It feels so weird for me to even be writing this stuff… I even told her mom that I loved her but couldn’t really explain why. Sarah even made me a diorama of us hanging together at my floral counter! I have it in my workshop to this day… I had even invited her to my wedding (with her mom’s accompaniment of course!)… but she didn’t get to come. The family moved soon after I got married (though it wasn’t supposed to be far) and I never saw her again. Bu this time she’s probably about 14 or so… and I wonder what she’s like now. This short little paragraph about her doesn’t really do her justice, but she captured my heart in a big way. I wonder what would happen if I saw her today… Would she remember me? Would she still wanna hang out with me? I’d like to think that she would… She was a great kid. I can only hope that she’s doing well. She gave me the tiniest taste of what loving a child you created would be like, and I am forever grateful to Miss Sarah for that.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
