Hi everyone it is YouTube Video Hop Day! I'm joining up with a few amazing artists over on YouTube to do a fun collaborative hop to help showcase and promote designers on YouTube. This will hopefully help to introduce you to new channels to explore.
Here are the other channels participating in today's hop:
For my project, I decided to showcase a layout using Prima's Almanac collection. I have been hoarding my limited stash of this collection for years now, and it was time to use it up! Its feminine country theme was perfect for today's layout.
For me - Memory keeping isn't just about family photos - It is also about remembering those moments that define our days. Sometimes we take for granted those quick laughs or daily reminders, or simple parts of our daily routines. My Sister and I share a little daily laugh, and today's layout spot lights that memory.
Please meet Laughing Lucy, one my Sister's goats. My sister, Kim, owns a small farm where she takes in rescue animals. Some are abused, some the owners have passed on and have no one to care for them, and some were just abandoned. Well Ms. Lucy was one of those rescues. Through months of love she has been one of those animals that our entire family has grown to love. Kim sends me a daily photo of Ms. Lucy and her sweet smile. It is my daily reminder to Laugh. I literally open my phone and belly laugh out loud. I mean seriously how could you not laugh out loud when you see this sweet face staring at you?
For today's layout, I chose the Almanac paper because it had so many farm type images. I also really loved the feminine soft colors as well. I imagine the "sounds" of the farm being like an orchestra early in the morning, with the crowing and clucking, so the music paper fit right in - don't you think?
I kept the design simple, but the overall layout looks very detailed due to the paper layers.
Here is a process video showing you all the details and lots of techniques.
HERE IS THE VIDEO..
Here is a view of my finished layout:
