Hitchcock's The Birds, still an amazing film and as scary as ever - and it's also the inspiration for my latest circle journal entry.
This was a fun book to work in - it's in the Project Runway circle, and takes its inspiration from the show's film genre challenge.
Each participant selects a sealed envelope containing a card with a particular film genre printed on it - previous players have already tackled Western, Comedy, Romance, Film Noir, Musical, and the one I really wanted, Horror. But I got Thriller, which would have been my tie second choice along with sci-fi, so I was happy with that.
And then our task was to incorporate a dress form into our page, showing the costume for our lead character.
My leading lady is immaculately turned out, but showing some signs of vicious pecking! :)
The background for this page uses watercolours for the stormy sky, a Crafters Workshop stencil for the trees, and the birds are all drawn by hand.
The back of our page is our sign in area , and we were to incorporate the card we drew from the envelopes, showing our chosen genre:
The background for this side is spray painted, and the bird was cut out from some handmade paper with flower petal inclusions.
This book is due to go in the post tomorrow (oops, I've just seen the time, make that today!), so I finished it just in time.
PS. this is possibly the only Barbie doll I could be persuaded to own:
isn't it wonderful? I especially love the bird pecking away at her forehead :)
