Post No. 2 for today! If you would like to see my latest card for the Greeting Farm Relay, please click HERE. So Smeared and Smudged has a mess of different groups that you can participate in. Vamp Kamp, Oh the Horror, Perfect Pinups… I think it’s pretty self explanatory as to what kinda art you’ll see in each group! As a Design Team member ( yay!), each month we participate in one of these groups. This month I got Rock-N-Rolla, which is perfect for me ‘cause I’m such a metalhead! Although, I have to say, I had a tough time deciding what to do. Use a song title? Lyrics? Nah, lemme do a layout on my fave band Type O Negative! I have met them a couple of times at release parties, and I never got around to scrappin the pics. You HAVE to click on these pictures. There’s no way you can see what the heck is goin’ on with this mess if you don’t! Of course, I had to use green-their official color. I made an O Negative symbol at the bottom too. Sprayed the heck out of it with Black Gold Glimmer Mist, and just kinda went to town! I don’t usually make such messy pages, but this one needed to be. These guys are “rude, lewd, and crude” (their own words, mind you!) so this page needed to be a bit of that. I made it real ly graphic, adding little stories of what went down that day and song titles from the album they were releasing. Just a whole big mess of info that just would have looked silly sitting in a pretty little journal box. I even threw in a heart beat ‘cause that’s what’s on the front cover! I’m really happy with it. I think it’s great ‘cause it’s just wacky. It’s unapologetic, like they are. Take it for what it is. Love it or hate it. Just decide and stick to it. That’s what Type O Negative is all about. You’ll note the quote at the top in bold writing: “It is better to be hated for who you are then loved for who you are not.” My fave quote from them. For sure. It’s so true. I totally agree. So have you visited us over at Smeared and Smudged yet? Our fearless leader terra, just released her very own stamp line withher sis Tori! You hafta check ‘em out! Not for the faint of heart, I warn you… but totally freakin’ rad. Totally different. Come see!!! Until next time, peace, love and vampires (did I mention that TON’s frontman has fangs??? Yum!)!
This is too cool! I love the green and the logo! Great photos. Wonderful job!

AAAAAAAAAAH! You met them?! I'm so jealous! I saw them on the Life is Killing Me tour, but I never met them. I LOVE your layout, it's perfect! They are definitely one of my fav bands, too.:)
Hey Alison, Great layout. My husband is a big Type O Negative fan.
