Inspiration Elevator November Challenge- Layers

Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level;  to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking beyond the mundane.
You can see all of Inspiration Elevator's previous challenges at on Facebook .

 This month's challenge is issued by the creative Katherine Sutton. Katharine has a fabulous, eclectic style where she showcases all kinds of mediums and keeps the focus on her great photos. This month she has a warm seasonal challenge for us. Here it is in her own words:

" 'cos Autumn is all about layers of leaves and layers of jumpers (in the northern hemisphere) I would like to challenge you to add lots of layers to your page....this could be layers of paints, inks, stamps, papers, glassine paper, acetate....lots of lovely layers."

I loved this challenge, it gave me a reason to take time and get dirty, LOL! I played with lots of fun techniques. I applied Gesso to my background. Then I used a stencil and a black marker to add circles and added Gelatos and water inside them. I sprayed with mist, added some stamping. Then piled on 5 layers of paper, some mesh, some thread and embellies. I love the fun and messy look of this page! Thanks for the challenge Katherine!

Here are some close ups:
