For The Love Of Ryan! My Craft Spot DT Call!

Hello my bloggy friends!! This layout is a first for me. 
 I saw something similar on a fellow friends blog and thought I would give it a shot. 
My main focus for this layout was layering. 
I am all for dimension in my layouts but never really layering.

For those of you that don't me personally, I love the paranormal!
I find it extremely fascinating!
My favorite paranormal TV show is
Paranormal State!
(the old one, not the new class)
In saying that, the host Ryan Buell is my favorite!!
I have been blessed with meeting him on more then one occasion.
This last time I was a part of the bloggy world so this layout got a touch of something new.
I also decided my something new would work great for the

Only having two pictures for this layout,
I decided to blow up the Space Needle and cut around it.
I thought I would add to the randomness of my layering.

In order to create my layers I laid down a strip of orange paper which you can see in the background.
I wanted to have an area marked to create on.
I found some paper scraps from the scrap bin that matched my background.
I used my Sizzix machine to cut out three different sized flowers and hearts.
I had some extra Halloween embellishments to add.
Rub-ons that came with my paper.
My rock to attach my bling.
Last I used my Cricut Cart, Rock Princess to make my little "lucky" skull.
My layer started from the left and worked it's way over.
I tried to show as much layout and dimension without over powering the page.
I think I found the right balance.

Where there was negative space with on my orange strip
I added some IROCK bling.
I used my rub-ons on my picture and for the with bottom layer.
I love the effect it had on my layout.

I hope you all enjoyed my "Ryan" layout!
Have a crafty day!!
