CHANGE HAPPENS .... by Linda Pearson

After some technical glitches my blog for 7th is finally here ....                                                             

Welcome to my journal page using the upcoming Embrace Change collection designed by Fiona Partridge. 


Embrace Change collection designed by Fiona Paltridge can be ordered soon through  Bee Arty subscriptions click these links to subscribe - 

Busy Bee – Classic Kit  or  Queen Bee – Premium Kit

Embrace Change stencils used – wreath A5 and garden poem A6

Embrace Change cutouts from the collection - butterflies (coloured, black and white)

Gesso – Bee Arty heavy primer 250ml (white)

NON-stick craft mat

Colour artist inks – barley, grass

Colour paste – apple of my eye, fire engine

Muslin Cloth 

Gel Matt Medium

3D Butterfly ephemera (own stash)


For this page I used a burlap page from the Dina Wakely blue journal however, this process could just as easily be incorporated into a scrapbook page layout, white cardstock or journal book.


Using a palette knife scrap a generous amount of Gesso – Bee Arty heavy primer 250ml (white) over the page.  If using burlap or similar protect the under page with some paper towel as the gesso may seep through.   Dry off.




Apply some Colour paste – fire engine through the Garden Poem stencil top and bottom of the page.  Allow to dry.



Spray or brush some lighter green paint over the gessoed page.  Dry off.




Mix some Colour artist inks – grass in with the Colour paste – apple of my eye then apply through the Embrace Change wreath stencil.  Allow to dry.



Mix in some Colour artist inks – barley into the Colour paste – apple of my eye to create a brighter yellow colour then using a small wooden stick (or similar) to add some colour to the ‘buds’ surrounding the wreath.



Add black spatters over the page using black paint or ink.




Fussy Cut several butterflies (both coloured and black/white images) from the cut-out paper from the Embrace Change collection, as well as a sentiment card from the paper card. 

Adhere some muslin fabric, with matt medium, over part of the wreath where the sentiment card will be placed. Place and adhere the butterflies randomly around the wreath and sentiment card. 

Please note,  I added some 3D ephemera butterflies from my personal stash also.

Thank you for checking in for my latest post and hope you have fun creating some fabulous pages using the beautiful Embrace Change by Fiona Paltridge collection through subscription;  Busy Bee – Classic Kit or Queen Bee – Premium Kit.
