Day 12: Tom Hanks’ brother: Did you know that Tom Hanks has a brother who sounds just like him? When Tom is busy his brother Jim gets the job of voicing Woody for video games and other projects.
Story: Have you ever been told you look like a celebrity? Create a layout about family resemblances, or characteristics. OR What tasks would you outsource if you had a doppleganger?
Technique: Inspired by Tom Hank’s Toy Story “Woody” character use something with wood grain or wood veneer.

When I read the prompt, I knew I had to use a mirror. Every time I walk past a mirror I say “Hello Naomie”.
While in college I was told I looked like Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde, but that look passed. However, looking like my mother became more and more distinct.
Detail 1: Using the woodgrain on the mirror was an easy choice to follow the prompt.
Detail 2: I don’t often journal a page. I may list the names but this journaling was an important feature for explanation. I added flowers because Mother loved flowers in the yard.
So many times, growing up I was told I sounded just like my mother; that I looked just like my mother; that I even walked just like my mother.
I never saw it. Now I look at my hands and I see my mother. I pass by a mirror and I see my mother.
Be sure to upload your layout to Flickr by midnight Pacific time.
