Our talented BBTB leader has selected the challenge this week. Our theme is to use a Cricut cut bee (buzz buzz) in our project. I have another layout of my granddaughter, this time, more up to date. She is a silly girl just bee-ing herself. Join us by linking up your 'bee' project to the BBTB blog. We would love to see your creations.
I used a new technique this week, which is a subtle background. I purchased 12x12 acrylic sheets online and this is my first attempt at making overlays with them. I used the beehive hexagon overlay from Artbooking and cut it almost full size. I put this on my 12x12 cardstock and spritzed with Perfect Perals cooper color. You have to look closely to see it in this picture, as I covered up almost all of it. I'll try the technique again using paints or some other medium. I used Pooh and Friends for the bees, hive, and the word Joan, using velum and Stickles for the wings. I used Artbooking for the word Bee-ing, shadowing it 2 times. I cut the border hexagon shape for the black border, that side needed something to balance the page. The lotus flower is from Kate's ABCs, covered in Stickles.
