TTIC #51 Edward Cullen

Happy Tuesday! There’s another great Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge for you to participate in! This week we are focusing on none other than Edward himself! The super talented Jen came up with this one, and here it is!

It's time to focus on Edward. Even though the stories are told from Bella's point of view all of the books with the exception of Breaking Dawn focus almost entirely on Edward, through Bella's mind. Even in New Moon when Edward is gone her every action is focused on not losing her connection with him. So for this challenge I want you to focus on your connection to Edward. What does his character mean to you?

For the creative challenge: Create a project that focuses on Edward.
For the comment portion: How do you feel about Edward's character? Is it like, love or disdain? Have you read the partial draft of Midnight Sun? What did you think about reading the story from his point of view?

This week, I decided to combine the Edward challenge with the Twilight Tuesday Sketch Challenge #13. Here’s my creation:


This is how I like to see Edward. Yes, he is sweet, considerate, attentive, and lots of other wonderful things. But, at his rawest state, he is a vampire. Pure and simple. And, since I’ve been a vamp fanatic for, like, ever, this is how I wanted to portray him. I mean, what could be better than this?


I love Edward. He’s an amazing character. He is absolutely one of the biggest reasons I love this series so much. He has so much depth to him, and as I have mentioned in previous postings, his relationship with Bella in Twilight (as they are becoming a “couple”) reminds me very much of my early relationship with my husband. So, I feel a connection to Edward in that way. IMG_7666

I started to read the Midnight Sun draft, and i loved it. But I stopped… everyone tells me that it “ends” at an amazing part… and I just don’t want that let down. I hope it gets finished. I really do, because I think it is a fantastic idea. And, I know it’ll be a great read once it’s completed.

Oh! And here is the original sketch that Dani created for us:


Pretty cool huh? I actually have a ton of ideas for this one… mostly involving Halloween! I’m going to try to get to them ASAP!

So, make sure you go and check out the rest of the Design Team’s creations!

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!
