Altered Art Layouts

I have always shied away from attempting altered art layouts.  The main reason is because I still have not taken the time to learn Photoshop but I love the look on all the layouts I am seeing in the galleries, and with all the new kits by the designers at Scrapbook Graphics, I decided it was time to jump on the bandwagon!

For my first attempt, I decided to add further embellishments to a quick page I had been wanting to use from my stash for years:  Guy Things QP 10 by Catherine Designs.  Additional elements added are Unique elements by Studio Rosey Posey, Comic Hero Kit by Kristen Rice, Old Clipped Frames Freebie by Amy Stoffel, Lucky One shamrock by CathyK Designs, cat by Christine Honsinger’s Fiddlette Designs and kite by Kasia designs.  It turned into quite an 'incredible' page for my Grandson's photo book.

Next, I used song lyrics from one of my all-time favorite movies on a page with the adorable photo of  my youngest son's kiddos.

Musical: Gypsy
Song: Together Wherever We Go

Wherever we go, whatever we do,
we're gonna go through it together.
We may not go far, but sure as a star,
wherever we are, it's together.

Wherever I go I know he goes.
Wherever I go I know she goes.
No fits, no fights, no feuds
and no egos, Amigos, together!

Through thick and through thin,
all out or all in.
And whether it's win, place or show.
With you for me and me for you,
we'll muddle through whatever we do.
Together, wherever we go.

You Are Unique Kit From Studio Rosey Posey @Scrapbook Graphics;

Ransom Note Alpha from Weeds & Wildflowers
Fonts:  all used up, 1942 Report, Tall Paul, 4990810 and Dawning of A New Day

It was so much fun playing with all the different elements from my new Scrapbook Graphics purchases on this next page!

I know I have a long way to go before I make show-stopping altered art layouts ut I really look forward to the adventure!  See ya soon :)
