I thought about this design for a while before I could begin. Having seen the movie so many times, I just could not decide what to focus on. Finally, I decided to focus on one of the most famous scenes from the movie..the flying on the front of the ship. This was just so romantic and emotional. The way their hands were moving, just seemed like a perfect LOVE STORY..a love that was forever...Gulp again!:) So, I drew the image of Jack and Rose standing in each others arms with her shawl blowing in the Ocean breeze. I was very careful to make Jack's hair JUST RIGHT..I think his hair was such a big part of his cute character. I found myself a bit nervous as I sketched this, I wanted it to look like the Jack that I knew from the Movie! I almost did the scene where Jack was standing in front of the clock in his tux at the Dinner scene. I loved that moment, he just looked so stinkin' cute. Since I could not decide which scene to focus on.. I used both ideas. I added an image of a clock I had painted a while back. I then copied it on my printer in black and white. Since the Titanic sank at 2:20 I thought this clocks time was very fitting.:( I added some swirl rhinstones to symbolize the waves of the ocean at their feet. I sketched a pencil drawn heart to symbolize the Heart of the Ocean that Jack drew in the portrait he sketched of Rose. I wanted the Heart to look rough and pencil sketchy just like his drawing. This challenge was about using Silver and Blue. The Blue is the Cardstock I used for the background. The Silver is the little Clip that is attaching the Sketched Heart! I colored the Pixie Dust Studio image in colored pencils. I also used a colored pencil around the edge of the cardstock, to add some dimension to the blue.
I had just a total blast working on this challenge. It was fun to think back about the feelings that the movie gave me the first time I saw it. It was also fun to think about how I still feel affected by the LOVE of Jack and Rose. It also took me back to a time that I had a "crush" on this beloved character Jack...that was long before I knew a "crush" could sparkle (tee hee). Anyway, a BIG thank you the gals over the the Cinema Challenge..Brooke and Sankari. These are a blast and I look forward to doing more in the future. You gals are the best!!
