I treated myself to a theatre ticket at half term and went to see Singin' in the Rain....
It was totally amazing! These posters had been cropping up all over London with this amazing oh-so-casual moment of dance in flight captured. I LOVE the film and so I hot-footed it to the show. I hung over the balcony railing as the cast served up 'Make 'em Laugh' and 'Moses Supposes' and we all giggled gleefully as Lina announced "I can't stan' 'im!". But best was when Lockwood sang and danced Singin' in the Rain. It poured on stage, water pooled across the floor which lit up beneath his feet and as he danced water sprayed and arced out over the audience. Spellbinding. The whole cast got in on the action at the end of the show. A whole host of umbrellas, flashing differently hued insides; liberal quantities of rain showering the stalls. Magical! I am going to go again and sit in the front row. Try and stop me!
Most of these supplies are from the Studio Calico kit Daydream Believer. But I wanted to create raindrops scattered across my page. I used a couple of techniques to achieve this. First I used the left-over scraps from a border punch that I normally shoot straight into the recycling. They make cute little blue raindrops. But the winner I think is the Glossy Accents. I put little blobs of it in and amongst and it looks like little shining droplets of water. Hurrah for transparent, shiny glue!
P.S. Seriously, if you get the chance, go and see it.
P.P.S. I will try never to complain about my Glossy Accents getting clogged up ever again.
