Wild West

Two of the challenges on the Disney Scrappers Forum fit this layout -- the Disney Frontierland challenge and the one about the Disney Streetmosphere performers.  This layout showcases a fun group of cast members called the Laughing Stock Company.  They perform western themed sketches out in front of the Golden Horseshoe Saloon several times a day.

For this layout I used Sketch #26 from the Sketch Support website.  I thought it was a good way to be able to use some of my Tim Holtz stamps and some old Cosmo Cricket Paper that I didn't want to completely cover up.

On the first page I added two stamped elements and some embellishments to compliment the photos.

The second page has the photos of our family with our friend Kevin who is one of the cast members in the Laughing Stock Company. 

For the title stamp I used Tim Holtz stamps and made my own multi-colored stamp pad. The metal in the corners is an iRock embellishment.  I embossed the cowboy with Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder and inked it with distress inks. The rope thing was made by making a mold with old jewelry parts and a button using Mold n Pour.  Then I melted Utee and Distress Embossing powder and poured the embellishment. FUN!!  The key is grungeboard cut from a Tim Holtz die and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Stain.

On the second page I added the other two grungeboard embellishments and then journaled on an October Afternoon journaling card. The Saloon stamp is also from the same Tim Holtz set and was also stamped and embossed with Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder.

If you haven't ever gotten to see the Laughing Stock Company, here is one version of this skit.

WOW! I adore this layout! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE all of the techniques you employ here, too! I have always wanted to do the mold and pour Melt Art thingy. I will have to catch you for a comment at Disneyscrappers, too. (And put this in my favorites). BTW, thanks for mentioning them in one of your posts--linking over made me a member and I really enjoy my time lingering there!
