Welcome to the Much Anticipated Disney/Pixar Blog Hop!!! You should have arrived from Tami's blog. If not, please go to Shawn's BLOG to start at the beginning so you don't miss anything!!!
For those of you who don't know me, I am a HUGE Disney fan!! We have been to Disney 4 times in the last 3 years and we are planning a Disney Cruise in October 2011!
I made a Toy Story layout from our September 2009 trip since Tanner dressed up as Buzz Lightyear for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
I do have some Blog Candy detailed the end of my post! Just in case you get lost along the way, here is the order of the hop!
Lori YOU ARE HERE!
I wanted to make a laser cut look layout. I have three different versions of this basic layout saved on my Gypsy. I have a tutorial HERE that shows how I made them.
I took one of my layouts and used it to create my 2-page layout. For the first page, I welded the blackout shadow of Woody (3.62w x 6.54h) in the big open space on the left. I welded he blackout shadow of "Toy Story" (4.42w x 3.15h) at the top.
For the right side, I flipped the page side to side and welded Buzz into to large open space (5.29w x 6.77h). I cut out both pages in black. If I were to do this layout again, I would not have cut them out in black because the bottom layer of the characters is black.
I copied the layers for "Toy Story" onto another layer. I sized them to match the blackout shadow, then ungrouped them and separated by colors.
I did the same for Woody.
Nine different colors for Woody!!! I cut them out and then glued them on the black base with my Martha Stewart glue pen.
I did use a black pen to color some of the highlights.
I put the pieces for Buzz on a 12 x 24 mat to size them then separate them. I had enough pieces that I needed two 12 x 12 mats, so I grouped, copied and pasted half of them onto another layer.
Here is one page.
Here is the other page.
Cut out. Notice all the tape ~ I did not want to take a chance at having to recut all my scraps and then recut the cuts!! Eleven colors for Buzz! This was a lot of work, but they look great!
After I put Buzz together, I used Glossy Accents on his helmet.
I outline the space first, then fill it in.
When it dries it is very shiny and is dimensional.
The layout had too much white space for me, so I added a couple of Army men.
I have been much better about journaling (yay for me) so I decided it would be fun to journal on the planet.
Here is a close up of "Toy Story".
Here is the two-page layout. I got the background paper from WDW. Tanner is dressed up as Buzz Lightyear in the pictures.
And here is my blog candy! All you have to do to qualify is be or become a follower and leave me a comment on your favorite Disney Character or Disney memory!!
