So, I was pretty excited to do last week’s Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. I instantly had some cool ideas in my head that I thought would be different from all the rest. I’ll get into that in a minute… But, I needed my copy of Breaking Dawn in order to have a quote/get my facts straight. My sis had my copy though… which you probably wouldn’t think would be a big deal since she lives right next door!!! I also need to reference Eclipse, which I do have in my possesion. Unfortunately, she never gave me the copy, and now it’s Tuesday again, and there’s a new challenge. I still would like to try and do it, but since the week’s up, I’ll just blog a little about it and if I have time (and she brings me my book), I’ll make the project I had in mind. Fingers crossed that I get the time!!!
SPOILER ALERT!!! So, in Breaking Dawn, you finally hear about Jasper’s story when he first became a vampire, and his “life” before the Cullens. It’s told in Eclipse, but after Bella becomes a vampire, she really “sees” him; which I found to be quite interesting. Bella sees his neck and jaw and she realizes the hundreds of bite marks all over it are just like the mark that James gave her in Twilight. She couldn’t see these marks with her human eyes. Jasper suddenly seemed dangerous to her. This made me think of this awesome cardstock that I have from Prism. It’s called Jade Spring. It’s a pearlized white (yeah, I know they sparkle) that has this fabulous, brushy, wispy pattern to it. If I don’t get to make my project, I’ll post a pic of the paper so you get the idea. Anyway, this paper reminded me of what Jasper’s skin would look like. I figured that most of the projects would be about Jasper’s ability to change the emotions of people around him… which is all well and good, but I wanted to get into the darker side of Jasper. The military man who was tortured both emotionally and physically. So I was going to make it kind of a “dark” project. Ahhhh, and as I am typing this, Pam brought me my book. Faboo! But, I think I’ll start the new TTIC project first.
