Singin' In the Rain

I have finally had an opportunity to create something for a Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge! The theme this time was "Singin' In the Rain" and you had to include an element of water in your creation.

For this collage, I was inspired by the outfits Debbie Reynolds wore in the movie, so I used this image from a reproduction vintage postcard. Lydia will probably recognize the music paper I included as her umbrella (wink!)

My "water" elements are the blue dotted paper which looked like dots, the crystal flower "rain drops" and the sheer, pale blue ribbon running down the side. I thought the arrangements of splatters of "water" by her feet and at the bottom gave the piece a lot of movement = dance!

I absolutely LOVE this movie. My father was a big fan of that era of film and I always remember watching those musical movies with him on Saturday afternoons! I think he would have liked to be Gene Kelly in another life.

That was fun! It's not too late to join in the fun -- the deadline to post your link is Thursday at noon their time. Head on over!

I like that one. (Small factoid -- Debbie Reynolds had a house in my home town when she retired.)
