Jacquie - the papercrafter with an amazing eye for color - brings us this week's challenge.
As New Moon movie release approaches we are seeing amazing pictures of the Wolfpack who become Jacob's Brothers. In New Moon the wolf pack play an important part in Jacob's life and the effect they have on the Quilute community. This also affects the Cullen family, they have a treaty with the Cullens and in time see that they all need to work together to rid Forks of the bad Vamps. This week we will be focusing on the Bond between brothers and how we apply that to our human lives. Women can lean on each other and we are strong all on our own but now and again we need that males presence as a brother, husband, best friend as a grounding force...as a safe place to be. We see that in Bella's need for Jacob.
Craft Portion: Make something that refects brotherhood... Be inspired by the wolf pack, Edward and Jasper/Emmitt, even the relationship between Bella and Jacob. Make a scrapbook page, a card for your brother or maybe a book for that special guy in your life. Celebrate brothers in any way you would like. (this would be a good chance to find those awesome pictures of the New Moon Wolfpack).
For my card, I wanted to re-create the "band of brothers" Quil, Embry and Jacob - in the mountains of La Push in the fall. I used my ink pads and a "direct to paper" method to recreate a background that looks like something sketched with oil pastels or artwork created with a brush. I used some yellows and oranges for fall foliage, here in FL everything stays green year round and this the time of year I am wistful for fall colors (and cooler temps - its still 90s here!). The Wolf stamp is hand carved and available from Dragonfly Curls at Etsy.
