New Video, 12"x12" Layout: Liz & Ted

Hi, everyone! I just finished this layout about my sister and how she likes to abuse my teddy bear:

The journaling reads:
Liz and Teddy have a little bit of a tempestuous relationship. Sometimes she treats Teddy with respect and allows him to hang out with her with her {like in the picture above, for example}. But then other times she becomes filled with some sort of violent rage which she insists on taking out on the poor bear {see picture to the left}. These mood swings can occur within a space of five minutes, so Teddy is never totally safe. Watch out, Teddy!

This layout is once again based on a sketch from Becky Fleck's book Pagemaps, and I need to print more photos because I have finished all the sketches I prepared so far. I pulled the next batch of sketches and I will start the photo editing/printing process tomorrow. That's always time consuming and annoying, but totally worth it in the end as I never have to do any cropping with a trimmer later. :)

I made a video of this layout coming together & posted it over on my YouTube Channel:

I hope you enjoy the layout & that today is the start of a very excellent week for you!

  2. Teddy's got to be glad to know you've got his back!! lol
    Great layout, I'm glad to hear that this photo process is also time consuming for you, i don't feel so inferior! Don't tell me what you're idea of "time consuming" is for you... let me have my little moment of peace.... rotflmao... lol

  4. Dawn-Marie, you have been doing an awesome job of cranking out those lovely layouts! :D Keep it up & your mojo will just keep on flowing!

    Jill, I don't think I even know how long, on average, it takes me to prepare pictures for a layout for printing. I've never actually times myself, but it sure feels like a really long time.

    Elaine, you're right. Poor Teddy does look a little stressed in those pics like he needs a hug. He has a tough life sometimes!
