This week's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge was "Grease". I've seen this movie many times since seeing it in the movie theater. I can't believe it's already been 30 years! Ouch...how the years fly by!
I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to create. The music is the biggest inspiration for me. I've been humming the songs since Saturday. I thought of making a card related to the "Hopelessly Devoted to You" song.
I found this photo in IMDB.com. The idea hit me...Danny Zuko's leather jacket! It was a little ambitious since I didn't have too much time, but here it is. I made a gift holder for movie tickets. At Christmas time, I like to give small gifts to people like our mail carrier and our favorite storytime children's librarian. I appreciate them and want to let them know they do a great job.
I started out by distressing basic black cardstock. I ran it several times (in different directions) through my paper crimper. I also got out my frustrations on it by crumpling it up into a tiny ball. I cut a diagonal slit in the paper. I used my sewing machine to sew in a faux zipper. The collar was a little difficult to make. I sewed it too. I love how the silver snaps give it an authentic look. I copied the Grease logo and cut it out of red cardstock. I used a pencil to draw in the word "Great". I used by Sakura gel pens to outline and fill-in the letters. I added a little tag with the word "Job!" to complete the sentiment (sorry, I hate taking pictures at night..I need better lighting).
