February Inspiraton By Marianne Johansson, Norway

"Magical Memories"

Hi all 2Crafty fans!
Thanks for stopping by the blog to check out my February inspiration.

But before we get started...

Another photo of our oldest daughter in London, this time riding the
London Eye (her sister is the photographer).

The trip and the ride on the London Eye was for sure a magic moment for the
two girls and I knew I had the perfect title for the layout.

Once again I have layered some of the chippies, here the Circle Lace Panel and Mini Branches.

The background is made with light modelling paste and different stamps and colors.

The title is almost neutral, just a bit gesso in random places.

One of my favorite chippies is the Square Collage Panel and here I have cut it into
 several pieces and used both on top and bottom of the photo.

Made a little "frame" of the above panel , glued some notepaper inside.

Everyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am regarding Johnny Depp !!!
I really believe he's one of the best actors out there
(and it doesn't hurt that he's so good looking LOL )

So enjoy my layout with lots of Johnny Depp.

Here I used the Fiddlestick Panel in several places. Love cutting up these panels!

I cut out the  circles chippies  and placed letters inside them.

The Barbed Wire matched my page as a bit rough and tough.

And of course I needed to show my love for Johnny Depp with the "Elegant Heart"
 on top of the photos.

The background is made with Gesso, mist, watercolors and stamps.

All the chippies have a layer of gesso and a bit of purple mist here and there.

I did some simple drawing on the page as well, hearts, circles  and lines.

Elegant Hearts

Until next time.

Haha! Looks like your daughter had fun and the LO reminds me of a calm beach. Gorgeous! I have to applaud your use of Mr. Depp in the 2nd LO. Fantabulous design and details and the purple is a smashing success! :) ~Niki
