Unchained Melody

I'm not a film fan - it's 10 years since I last went to the cinema and probably almost as long since I watched a film on TV without getting bored and switching off after the first 10 minutes - I'd rather read a story in a book than watch it on a screen - so I was really REALLY challenged by this month's Naughty or Nice Challenge, which is At The Movies

However I printed out this Wrinklies recreation of the famous scene from Ghost decoupage from the CD "The best of La Pashe 2014" - and then spent a week wondering what the heck to do with it.

While picking out a paper for another project, I realised an old K & Company 12 x 12 pad had a sheet with a vintage movie theme, and at last things started to come together.


I used a 20cm square card. The background is a square of the paper, overstamped with the words "Movie star" at random. I fussy-cut the projector, film, tickets and popcorn sign from the paper and used them to finish the card once the decoupage was in place.

Whether this is naughty or nice depends on a couple of things - whether or not you see any symbolism in that pillar of clay drooping over like that, and whether, when watching the original film, you found That Scene rather *ahem* stimulating, or you couldn't really see it properly through your tears.
