Volume 2 :Wild Things

Challenge #2 is here!!!!!
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
If you are not familiar with the book...
movie trailer--> (I am so excited!!)
No specifics on this one except use the word WILD somewhere on your page :D
Just be inspired by it somehow, anyhow.

Post your project (card,LO, or altered object!) in the comments to this post by June 15
and please let us know what about the book inspired you!

Here's some DT work to inspire you!

I was inspired by the colors and the nature motif of this book... on my LO, I tried to bring that to life! :):):)
Lori: I was inspired by the muted colors and woodsy images and I loved the line in the book that I used for my title: "let the wild rumpus begin!"

Haggith: I was inspired by the colors of the jungle, especially the colors orange, green and blueish/grey. And the flowers and trees. And a bit inspired by the little boy running around getting all mischievous!!! :)

Journaling: "I love your free spirit; your laughs, your smiles; your running around. You make me happy"

Kimmy: I was so inspired I made 2 pages. This one includes my favorite line from the book, a jungle made out of flower trees and my wild little niece romping about with the wild things I printed off the internet.
This was my original idea. I had this adorable wrapping paper and these great KI papers that matched the color scheme of the book.

Lou: I was inspired by the color and shapes on the endpages of the book.
Bree: The title "King of the Wild things" is a line from the book, and my journaling says ( I love you so much I could eat you up.. like in the book)
Also the clouds and stars in the sky for the "gloomy night without making it too gloomy...

The winner of challenge #1 will be posted later this weekend, just waiting on a few votes from the DT! :D


Have a WILD week!
