Bang that Beat!

This Disney layout is dedicated to some of the great Disneyland Street Performers. The Trashcan Trio is a group of percussionists who play in Tomorrowland at Disneyland. They keep a foot stomping, toe tapping beat going using just trashcans, buckets and trashcan lids. As you can tell, they're a fun group!

Again, I used Scrap Within Reach " Paper Boy" paper for this layout, and sketch #11 from Sketch Savvy. It was a one pager, but you know I can't do just one page for my Disney photos or I will never get them finished! So I turned it into a two-pager again.

I decided to put part of the title in a trashcan. The template for the trashcan is at the end of this blog post. No, I still can't make an SVG file, so if you make one, please let me know and I will link it here.

The trashcan is cut from some really old Black Tie Basic Grey paper that I had.

To add to the industrial look, I added some Tim Holtz Ideaology washers and some large pewter brads. The teal trim is Creative Imaginations.

Here is the template. Please let me know if you convert any of my templates into SVG files so I can link to them and we can share them with others.

This is TOTALLY fabulous! I love your garbage cans, I thought they were premade because they look so awesome and flawless! :D These colors play together so well! :)

I surfed for a long time just now trying to find a "create an SVG file" tutorial that I seen in passing today. I had to backtrack through all of today's browser history, but I finally found the SWEET tutorial link. I hope this helps you next time you want to make this shape again. :D

oh wow! Fantastic! Love the trash cans. Where are they standing? that wall behind them looks cool.

Susan -- That wall is the Star Tours/Star Trader wall across from the Buzz Lightyear ride. Above it they have the galaxy murals and under them are the old Mary Blair murals.

My oldest was in a percussion band for quite a while and got to perform with them across the country... Very cool stuff!
