TTIC #38 - Bella and Edward's Honeymoon...



"Bella and Edward's Honeymoon"

This week's Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge is by the beautiful and
very talented Dani....


"This week's challenge we will focus on the honeymoon scene from Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. If you haven't read this book beware there are serious spoilers ahead...

"I'm nothing if not thorough" - Edward Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, pg 78.

" He didn't ask me what I was thinking, which was out of character for him. I guessed that meant he was just as nervous as I suddenly was." - Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, pg 79.

Breaking Dawn has so many wonderful scenes and one of my favourites is the honeymoon that Edward took Bella on after they were married. What a romantic time for them. Alone on a tropical island...sigh. This is the stuff dreams are made of."

Challenges -

Craft:
Make something that you feel represents Edward and Bella's honeymoon.

Comment: Tell us about your honeymoon... (Just the sweet romantic stuff...Not too much info please!!). Did you go somewhere or see something special? Or did you hide out from the world and enjoy being with your new spouse? If you haven't been on a honeymoon, that's ok! Tell us about your dream getaway....


This week I thought I would do something a bit different and see how a canvas would work for this challenge....So off I went to get my copy of Breaking Dawn and tried to remember which scene I liked the best, and then this passage caught my eye...

"I promised we would try," he whispered, suddenly tense. "If...if I do something wrong, if I hurt you, you must tell me at once." I nodded solemnly, keeping my eyes on his. I took another step through the waves and leaned my head against his chest. " Don't be afraid," I murmured. "We belong together." I was abruptly overwhelmed by the truth of my own words. This moment was so perfect, so right, there was no way to doubt it. His arms wrapped around me, holding me against him, summer and winter. It felt like every nerve ending in my body was a live wire. "Forever," he agreed, and pulled us gently into deeper water.
-Bella Cullen, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 5, pg. 85.

So...I am still a little unsure about my canvases...I guess, I am still finding my style, which to me is half "scrapbooking" and half "painting".... But I thought, what the hey, and just went with what felt right.... And this is what I came up with...



I used the "Forever" out of the passage that I liked and then used that as my basis of inspiration..... I am still experimenting with using torn paper and paint together and trying to get it all to work... But I don't think it came up too bad....


Then I added some butterflies to give the canvas a more tropical island feel.


Well, I'm not Monet or anything, but I had fun creating it....

Andy and I didn't have our honeymoon straight away we had to pay for our own wedding and there just wasn't enough money after...But a couple of years later we went to Singapore with another couple and it was really fabulous...I don't know if I would go back...America seems to be very high on my list at the moment...So many friends I want to meet!! But I am so glad we went!

Ok, so go and create....
