LOAD1019: T.Hanks a Lot Day 12

Day 12

Prompt:

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.
