QUEEN OF QUIRK an art journal page or scrapbook layout by Linda Pearson


For today’s blog I was really pushed for creative time, yet it is amazing how you can produce a layout that you are really happy with despite little time and not much thought.  I hope you also agree the simplicity of this art journal / layout has enhanced the focus image and the elements used. 

Bee Arty products used to create this project:

White Cardstock – Bee Arty A4 200 gsm white and black


Bee Arty Colour Spray  (assorted colours) rainforest, oasis

Create metal die

Tracked stencil A4 (Road trip collection)

Encircled A4 stencil

Bee Arty Embossing powder (mix of stormy weather, snow white, bling, envy)

Versamark Stamp pad translucent

Texture Paste

Black ink or paint

Black Archival Ink

Vermillion Archival Ink

Blending tool/foam tip

Own image and sentiment

Foam tape


Run the Create metal die through the machine onto White Cardstock – Bee Arty  black cardstock. 


Spray the Bee Arty Colour Spray  – rainforest, oasis onto plastic acetate then spritz with water to mix slightly.  Place the white card over the inks mix, spread hand to rub inks across page.  Allow to dry.


Spread large drops of Bee Arty Colour Spray  – rainforest, oasis onto the card in both colours, then tap the card onto desk to encourage ‘dripping’ down the page.



Add white Gesso to the texture paste, spread the paste through the Encircled A4 stencil over two sections of the page.  Allow to dry.     

Using the number/alphabet section of the Tracked stencil A4 in three places close to the circled stencil.  Add black splatters around the page.



Create a mix of embossing powders to suit the background colours.  Use a blending tool and Versamark Stamp pad translucent pounce the ink through the Tracked stencil A4 stencil onto the black die cut image (Create metal die) .  

Sprinkle the embossing powder mix then heat set to activate the powder.

Distress the edge of the image with vermillion coloured stamp ink.

Back the image with cardboard off-cut smaller than the image.



Add the distressed and carded sentiment to the page.  

Tear the edges of the cardstock and distress with black Archival Ink.

I hope you are encouraged to create your own layout.

Bye for now from Linda
