November Layouts by Keren Tamir

My First Layout is titled Friends Forever...

I love this picture of my 2 kids holding hands while walking.
 I used some amazing 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces for this layout.

The first one is the 11" Flowery Swirl frame which I covered in
 gesso and then dabbed in yellow acrylic paint and blue and 
white fluid chalk ink. I added a pretty button in the
 middle of the large flower.

For the title I used 2 of the words from the
I simply inked them in white chalk ink.

Friendship Mini Word Pack (unit of 3)

One of my favourite parts of this layout is the hexagons on the edges.
 First I covered them with Gesso. Then using a smaller hexagon mask,
 I dabbed Textured Paste on the chipboard and beyond the edges.
 Finally I dabbed the raised textured areas with a Yellow acrylic dabber
 and with blue fluid chalk ink.

My Second Layout is a Fall Layout
titled My Sunshine

I used one of the fabulous Clock Face Frames.
 I simply painted it in yellow acrylic paint.

For the title "My Sunshine", I covered the bottom half of the letters 
in yellow stickles and the top half in orange distress stickles.

Finally I used these beautiful Heidi's Vines.
 I have a short tutorial for you below, on how I made them.

Crayon Resist Tutorial

1. Paint the chipboard vine with white Gesso

2. Using a crayon, draw skeleton lines on the leaves and fruit.

3. Spray the chipboard with your desired color of spray ink.

4. Let it dry or use a heat tool. The crayon will resist the ink when dry.

Here is the result:

Finally I want to show you one of the layouts I made earlier 
this month using 2 Crafty Chipboard. In this layout I used the
 other half of the 11" Round Flourish frame 
 I had used in my October reveal.
