July 2018 Movie Madness Challenge - UPDATED WITH WINNER!

Postby rachel0017 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 5:07 pm

The winner this month, as chosen by random.org, is #24: Tammey! Thanks so much to everyone for doing BOTH the Movie Madness and Book Lover's Challenges this month!

The Book Lover’s Challenge turns two this month, and to celebrate this, plus the fact that we co-host two challenges we love, Rose (Rozebud) and I are holding a “Challenge Crossover” where the Movie Madness world and Book Lover’s world collide. We will both be featuring The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak. The book was published in 2005 and was made into a movie in 2013, starring Geoffrey Rush.
 
The Book Thief is about Liesel Meminger, a child growing up in Nazi Germany during World War II. As the story begins, Liesel has been sent to live with foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann. In secret, Hans begins to teach Liesel how to read, and she becomes so enchanted with the power of the written word that she begins stealing books the Nazis are burning. When her foster parents provide asylum for a Jewish boxer and family friend named Max Vandenburg, he and Liesel develop a friendship over their shared love of words. Max writes books for Liesel and gives her a blank sketchbook, enabling her to become the author of her own story.


 
The story is very dark, both visually and topically, with Death narrating Liesel’s journey, so we are going to take that idea and run with it.
 
OPTION 1: Darkness of Paper
For this option, use ONLY tones of gray (black, white, gray) as your paper selection. You can use other colors in the photos, embellishments, and title, but tones of gray must comprise 100% of the paper choice, and 50%-75% of the total layout.
 
OPTION 2: Darkness of Photo
For this option, use ONLY black and white photos on your page. You can use any color of papers you like.

Sample for Option 1, using 100% tones of gray for the background paper:

 
For the bonus, do BOTH the Movie Madness AND Book Lover’s Challenges. When you post your second layout, be sure to include a note letting us know that you’ve done both. You can include a link to your layouts or include photos of both. For example, if you’ve already done the Book Lover’s Challenge and are now entering the Movie Madness Challenge, include a note, link, or photo with your submission saying you’ve already done the Book Lover’s Challenge, and be sure to do the same thing back on the Book Lover’s Challenge otherwise Rose won’t know you’ve submitted to both. This is probably clear as mud, so feel free to ask whatever questions you might have!
 
**Because of this unique nature of this challenge, some of the rules are different this month, so please read ALL the Fine Print.**

The Fine Print:
1. HAVE FUN MAKING YOUR PROJECT!
2. Entries open to new projects - paper, digital, & card making.
3. May be combined with one other challenge that allows it, EXCEPT the Book Lover’s Challenge. To get the bonus, you MUST complete TWO unique layouts, one for each challenge.
4. Due July 31st, at 11:59 PM.
5. One lucky winner, chosen at random, will receive a $5 ACOT gift card from us!
6. Only one entry permitted this month.
7. A RAK is awarded to a second winner if there are more than 15 unique entries (not including bonuses) during the month.

I chose option 1 - Darkness of Paper.  Each strip is fringed though it doesn't show up well in the photo.  Inspiration was from a video I saw by Paige Evans
