"FINDING BEAUTY" by Linda Pearson

  For my blog today I have created a scrapbook page using some elements from the Whispering Woods collection (designed by Sue Smyth).

Whispering Woods paper collection

Forest Favourites metal die

Forest Whisper A4 stencil

Natures Words 12x12” scrapbooking paper

Woodland Tags 12x12” scrapbooking paper

Birch 12x12” scrapbooking paper

Colourblast Embossing powder

Colourblast Mica Powder

Texture Paste

Heat Tool

Paint pen black fine

Foam Tape

Liquid adhesive



1.   Using the  add the floral section of the Forest Whisper A4 stencil with texture paste vertically over three sections of the paper.  Dry off.

2.      In this instance I mixed my own embossing powder using several different colours and textures to create a mixture to suit the colour palette (greens and pinks) of the page.

Lay the stencil over the dried texture paste add Versamark embossing ink through the stencil using a blending tool. 

Sprinkle the green embossing powder over the clear ink, heat the powder to set.



3.    Repeat the process for the flowers and pink embossing powder.  Heat set the powder.

Repeat for the other textured elements.

4.    The above image A  shows the embossed textured elements, image B shows these sections after detailing with fine black paint pen.



5.       The joining tape has embossing powder added, again a mix was created using a variety of Colourblast Embossing powder and Colourblast Mica Powder (green/brown/gold).  Rub the Versamark ink over the tape then sprinkle the embossing powder.  Heat set the powder to activate. 

Tear the tape into 3 pieces remove the backing tape and place onto the page between the textured elements.



6.     Cut four tags* from the Woodland Tags 12x12” scrapbooking paper, distress the edges of the tags with black archival ink. *When cutting the tags cut an extra tag along the long edge to act as a band to adhere the tag to the page.

Arrange and adhere the tags to the page with liquid glue.

Run the Forest Favourites metal die, onto white cardstock, through the die-cut machine.

Emboss the die cut piece in the same manner as the textured paste stencil in step 1.



7.   Add photos to the flip out tags with photos cut to approximately 5 x 8cm.  Add 4 photos to the 4 tags.

Add the sentiment to the page backed with foam tape. Distress the edges of the word strips with black archival ink. 


Thanks for stopping by and look forward to creating for you again soon.


Cheers from Linda
