November Layouts by Debbi Tehrani


My first page I'd like to share was created for last month's mood board at Scrap Around the World. 2Crafty was sponsoring this fun challenge, and our design team was invited to play along as guest designers. My page was inspired by the colors and each one of four of the images in the moodboard. And of course, I was able to find the perfect 2Crafty chipboard to make my page.

The bottom middle photo of the mood board looked like bubbles and that gave me the idea to use the 2Crafty "Crazy Circles" panel. The watercolor in the top left image of the moodboard inspired me to try giving this piece a watercolor, rainbow look. I sprayed various colors of spray ink on plastic film and then pressed it onto the gesso-coated chipboard panel. I tilted the panel on its side. I love that the open circles give you space to add little bits and pieces. My journaling, tucked into a paper bag starts "There is always something to be thankful for," and I journaled about some of the many blessings in my life.

I treated the title, from the "Birthday Sentiments" sheet with the same watercolor technique. The bird in the moodboard gave me the idea to use feathers under my title. I coated them with gesso and then painted them with Twinkling H2O's, which gave them a lovey shimmer.

As I was looking for some colorful papers, I came across this piece that looked sort of like a paint chip, and I wondered if the 2Crafty "Small Filmstrip" would work here, and it was just perfect! I inked it with black stamp ink to make it stand out. I watercolored some hearts and stars from the "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" sheet to sprinkle around the page.

These lovely ladies are my husband's sister and her daughters. Shahrzad is visiting from Iran, so I decided I'd start an album for her, using pictures I snagged off of her Facebook page.

The "Selfies Word Pack" was just the thing for this page, as were the "Polaroid Assortment Frames." I embossed these pieces with a white embossing powder that has silver flecks in it for some glitz and glamour. 

A glittery, silver-embossed "Mini Camera" was a perfect accent for a selfie page, and it was a great place to stick a subtitle from "Mini Word Set 1." I used black stamp ink on the "Sharon's Butterflies" for a dramatic touch against the bright pink.
