.....Well, Bee of course!! Hullo there dear friends, it's Horace here with a lack of photos for you. Our camera has been having a bit of a hissy fit of late and despite snapping away whilst creating various projects, the camera decided to delete my hard work. Hence only the end result is shown, thanks to my trusty iphone's camera facility.
This is my entry for two challenges; the B is for.. challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, and the use texture over at Smudgy Antics. As soon as I saw the challenge details my furry little brain went into overdrive as to how to combine the two with an idea that had been baking away for a while.
I had some honeycomb style patterned paper, which made me think of bees, then I happened to notice an image of a bee supplied by The Graphics Fairy. Ooh, along with these and the remit to use texture for the Smudgy challenge, I began creating, and came up with this little piece
The Eclectic challenge calls for 3 things beginning with B, so we have my large Bee image, a teensy butterfly from my Martha Stewart double punch, and the colour blue, both in the patterned paper, and on the blue hexagon shapes, which were made using puff paste - very textural as it puffs right up as you dry it - coloured blue and applied through a mask. I also used Grunge Paste coloured with yellow paint and applied this through a mask to create yet more texture to comply with the Smudgy challenge.
Look how busy the bee has been, producing all of this honey, mmm
I also tried out our new stamps as the Smudgy challenge calls for a stamped image to be used on your project. The flower and leaves are Paperartsy Eclectica stamps which we bought at the fabulous Artist trading Post shop, wow, what very friendly and informative people they are, we wanted to buy the whole shop! I curled the edges of the stamped flower to make it really stand out, ooh even more texture!
I hope you like my little offering, I enjoyed making it.
