Just Bee-ing Joan layout

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.
