I am inspired by a lot of things. Sometimes it is a color, a texture, maybe an object or a pattern.... or it is a special movie. That is what inspired the up-cycled bottles I am posting with this blog. "Twas the Nightmare Before Christmas" is one of my all-time favorite movies!!! When the chance came to be part of an ART SHOW that had this movie as a theme I jumped at it. (Did I mention it has been at least a decade since I was part of an art show and it was not in 3D objects? No? Well, this is new to me but I look forward to the opportunity to do this.
I started thinking about how I could combine mosaics and up-cycling with something else i love. I should say - some characters I love. Jack and Sally..... I love them! (I know I say it a lot but I think you should say good things about what you love often.) I love these characters because of their role in the plot but also because of the way they are put together. They move differently and I have always felt like I did too. That kid that never felt confident in school? That was me and I moved awkwardly - sort of like Jack and Sally.
I am like Jack and Sally too because I pursue love and don't give up on it. So putting Jack and Sally on a couple of bottles that could be used everyday was a quick and easy decision. I would love to see my 2 favorite characters all year long! I share these photos with you because I know I am not the only one who has a love affair with this movie, Jack, Sally and all of Halloweentown. I hope you enjoy them!
