It’s Tuesday again! And this isn’t just any Tuesday… it’s the Tuesday that I get to pick the next Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge!!! Do you have any idea how excited I am?!?!?! Here is my challenge…
I am so excited to be bringing you my second challenge! This one is a little different, because you get the opportunity to make yourself the subject! Spoiler alert! Don't continue reading if you haven't finished the Twilight Saga!!!
In Breaking Dawn, Bella transforms from human to vampire. In life, we all go through changes...though not as severe as Bella's! What kind of changes have you physically gone through? Cut off all your hair? Dye it blue (like me?)? Nose job? Pregnancy? Lost a lot of weight? We just celebrated Halloween... did you or someone you know wear a costume that transformed them to being unrecognizable?
Craft Challenge: Create something that narrates a physical change you've gone through
Comment Challenge: Tell us about your change, or a change that you wish you could go through!
It’s no secret that I like to change my image pretty frequently. Most of you have seen the different incarnations of my hair! Well, it goes beyond just my locks… When I am of “normal Alison” size (i.e. my boobs aren’t heavy and swollen with milk, and my belly isn’t soft from being stretched by my unborn babies), I like to change my style all the time. Like daily. I mean, I have tried and true looks, but they’re just varied. I like to switch things up for myself a bit. I like to think it keeps me interesting. I think this started in the beginning of High School… I’ve gone from Goth (my fave look that don the most, ‘cause that’s the “real” me!), to Raver (which is such a fun look!), to more of what you’d see an artist living in Arizona wearing (if that makes any sense at all!). It’s fun for me. Yeah, maybe I look a little costume-y to some people… but it’s a way I can express myself. I like to have fun with clothes, and hair, and shoes… why not have fun? Why not stand out? Ok, off the soap box Alison… on to my project. One of the biggest changes I went through happened last year…
Yup! When I was pregnant with Baby Rhiannon! Click on the picture to see just how huge my belly was!!!
All I can say is holy cow!!!
So I used cardstock from Tinkering Ink and Prism. The TI paper has such fantastic patterns! I don’t usually work from just one collection at a time, I like to mix it up (big surprise, I know!), but this set of patterns was exactly what I was looking for with this page! I added stickers from Scenic Route, a brad, a couple of arrows and voila!
Here’s a spread I did back when I first started scrapping… I never even finished it! But, it was quite a transformation!
Again, click on any picture to see it bigger.
Ummm, I think that qualifies for a pretty big change huh? I think it was a pretty ballsey move. And I never tell people when I’m chopping off my hair. I love to see the shock on people’s faces! ;}
If I could change anything about myself…..??? Let’s just go with the extreme fantasy here huh? I would want to be like Bella. Yup, I’d want to be a vampire. Call me crazy, fine. I’ve always been fascinated with the vamps. I’d love to be one of them. Though I’ve gotta say, I’d def. be the vegetarian kind!
Ok, it’s your turn! Show me what you’ve done!!! And, make sure you check out the rest of the fantastic TTIC Design Team!!!
