Be the change ...! with shaker window by Linda Pearson
Hi Bee Arters!!
For today’s blog I am embracing change by ‘Being the change I want to see’ using the gorgeous collection designed by Fiona Paltridge. Focus techniques explored in this post include lots of fussy cutting, colouring, stencilling and crafting a shaker window for interest.

Poetry 12x12 scrapbooking paper word sheet from the Embrace Change collection designed by Fiona Paltridge
Web metal die from the Untangled collection designed by Tanya Froud
Colour blast embossing powder – stormy weather or black
Life of colour pens - black white
12x12 clear acetate sheet
Small offcut of cardboard (shaker window frame)
Rose Gold metallic sheet
Water colour pencils or equivalent for subtle colouring of stamped flowers
Pink micro beads
Rose gold sequins
Not easy to see in this image but next cut out the clear acetate to fit the web cut out. Carefully adhere together. As I was making a shaker window I also cut a cardboard frame the same size and painted black (forgot to take photo). Then adhere the card frame to the the acetate for creating depth in the window.
So, cutting the sheet is optional.
You could bypass the above step and just adhere the window to the page BUT not before you add some cut out flowers, leaves and a butterfly from the coloured cut out embellishments. Add some micro beads and sequins to the window before sealing the top of the window.
Go to town adding the flowers to the page around the 3 edges of the window (spot glue in the middle of the flower shapes so the edges are independent of the page.
For detailing and finishing off the project adhere some micro beads to the berries, leaves and the butterfly wing for added texture.
Cut the word phrase from the Poetry 12x12 scrapbooking paper word sheet add some mounting tape behind the words to lift them off the page. Using the Stabilo All Pencil Black – Bee Arty add shadows around the wording and flowers around the page and blend to soften the effect using water and a brush.
Finally add some Stabilo All Pencil Black – Bee Arty around the edge of page again wetting with water to blend as you go.
I hope you
enjoyed this project and thanks for stopping by …. Happy creating!
