November Inspiration and Small TUTORIAL
by Marianne Johansson


Today I have two layouts to show you, the first one with a small tutorial.

The photo this time, is from my town, Hamar in Norway and a glass building ,
 built to cover the remains of a church from the Middle Ages.
A fantastic building and covered with lots of trees makes it a special & beautiful place.

I used some of the chippies as "stencils" on this,
both the moroccan panel and the leafy twig branches.

First I colored the leafy twig branches with a mix of gel medium and mica powder.

Here you see the branches ready covered with the mix

Next I used the negative part of the above chippie and a sponge, "dabbing" the pattern
 on my paper with the same mix of gel medium and mica powder.

Here you see the result, I was really pleased how it turned out.

My background is gessoed so the result of the "dabbing" gets a slightly different look.

I added some parts of the Moroccan panel as you can see in the photo below.

I used the same technique with the stencil as above, using the chippie as a stencil.
 Only this time I used ink as my color medium.

And here you see my final layout ready.
A dreamy layout with colors and elements of fall.

I had some sunflowers in my stash and they were perfect for my layout this time

I also added some of the Mini Branches in a cluster together with the sunflowers.

The title, Captured Moments is colored with ink in two different colors, black and orange.

The second layout I have made for my November inspiration is a layout with a photo
 of my girls, from our vacation in London in June this year.

This time I chose to keep the chippies rather natural, only with a dash of ink
in random places. I wanted the chippies to "glide" into the layout together
with the photo and pattern paper.

This title matched my daughters mood on this trip - they really had an awesome time

I cut the circles into pieces and used them on different places on the layout.

 Absolutely love the Hessian Patch panels, they can be used in so many different ways!
