Briefly -- to obtain encrypted file systems, the process is to create
partitions, mark them as encrypted volumes, configure the encrypted
volumes, and then put LVM and/or file systems into the encrypted volumes.

Why not the other way? I have been doing it the other way for years with no perceived difficulties: create RAID1 with two drives, then LVM, and set up encryption for three LVM virtual partitions, swap (random key), tmp and home (both with passphrases)-- everything else in unencrypted virtual partitions.
