09/27/21 - "Use Your Stuff" Challenge: Retro

Popping in to bring you the current challenge over at the "Use Your Stuff" Blog: Retro!
Here is the art that accompanies the theme:

So technically my layout isn't retro...yet!
But it will be someday! LOL
I was inspired by the music themed art to create this 12x12 Traditional Paper layout about my current character obsession:
Ned from the Twenty-One Pilots "Chlorine" video.
Isn't he cute?!

And no, Ned is not a llama but I love the way the llama sticker looks on the layout! :)

I used a really old 12x12 Pink Paislee PP, a really old sticker border and a few other old-ish items from my stash.
Note: I did not add the splatters to the BG paper, they were already part of the paper.

Journaling: "I love Ned, the cute CGI creature that represents Tyler's creativity in the Twenty-One Pilots Video 'Chlorine'."

Here is a better view of the glittery stars in all their glittery glory!

To create the collage I found photos from the internet and took screenshots. I then used a photo collage app on my cell phone to create the photo layout, and sent it to my home computer to print out.
5x7, HP photo paper, printed from my HP Envy.

I prefer the use of photo collages like this for a cleaner look when scrapping multi-photos.
Must be because I'm so used to Pocket Pages now, haha!

Finally here is the video for "Chlorine" in case you're interested in seeing this cute little guy in action.
Watch 'til the end!

09/24/21 - "RIP Kayli"

Note:  *NOT MY PIG*

12x12 Traditional Paper Layout

My friends at Central Texas Pig Rescue lost another piggy; Heaven gained another angel.
These layouts are always difficult to create, but I think they are important.

Journaling: "Kayli died due to intussusception, a deadly condition where the intestines slide into themselves. Even the amazing surgeons at Texas A and M Veterinary Hospital were unable to save her. RIP, Beautiful - 08.27.21"

Products: Amy Tangerine for American Crafts, Elle's Studio, Freckled Fawn, Kelly Purkey, PinkFresh Studio, Studio Calico

Sadly I've had to do this more than I would like (see past layouts that I may or may not have shared):

I have another layout to create about another loss @ CTPR.
I'll  post it as soon as it's completed and scanned.

03/27/23 Planning with Urban Journal Season Ink

My printer was having issues and I fixed it but during the interim I was not scrapping and lost my mojo ::le sigh:: But I've still been ...
