Inspired by the announcement that Apple is no longer offering the iPod for sale. I got thinking about all the things that have become obsolete over the years due the the advancement of technology. Sadly, I still have many of these items stored in the basement. Maybe they're not obsolete, they might be considered antiques now.

A solid paper from APP Carpe Diem was used as the foundation of the page. Artsy paper 3 was layered above the solid paper. A layer mask was added and using the gradient tool the bottom part of the paper was hidden (this covered some of the unwanted design and textures).The image of the three men was extracted, duplicated with a halftone pattern filter added (blending mode: hardlight). A custom shadow was added. The image of the man sitting down was extracted, duplicated with a halftone pattern added. A custom shadow was added also. The lapels of the suits were extracted, duplicated with snippets of paper clipped to them. The frame slide from APP Portiere was added with pictures clipped to the frame masks. The page was completed by adding dimensional embellishments, word art, paper textures, stains and splatters.

Thank you for looking!

I was also stunned and sad to hear about the demise of the ipod. Love this layout, such creativity and imagination!
A wonderful fun page that brings a smile. I love the suits with the wide lapels.
