Giant Bear Layout

I saw the challenge at Red Carpet Studio this week and immediately knew which picture I wanted to use. The challenge is to be inspired by the Iron Giant movie poster. Right away I thought of a picture of my daughter with a giant teddy bear she was given last month. Her friend is moving and asked us to take care of it. My daughter had no problem spending the afternoon feeding, cuddling and dragging the bear everywhere.

Here is my layout:

Here is the movie poster:

I chose to do the obvious with the word "Giant" and the giant teddy bear. But I also started by choosing papers that matched the colours in the poster. I ended up scaling back on the dark colours as I didn't want my layout getting too depressing.

Then I chose a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. I like the circle in the background as it looks like the moon in the movie poster.

I kept pretty close to the sketch. I used the DCWV Kidlet Stack for the background, bears, title and some trim. I used My Mind's Eye Collectable & Sweetest Thing cards. The yellow is Close To My Heart paper as well as the blue (Lucky). The black trim is We Are Memory Keepers Retro Glam Stickers. And of course I got to use my Martha Stewart circle cutter. Can you tell I was digging through the stash for this one?
