Hello Bees

Challenge
Simon Says Monday: We’re All a Buzz
Double D: Begins with M Mixed Media

I used white gesso to stamp honeycomb in the right top corner then smeared on mustard colored texture paint. Spritz with blue shimmer spray then heat embossed chunky black and white enamel and stamped in black some arrows. The face and three bees are printed on tissue paper and applied with white glue. Greenery and sentiment were cut on Silhouette and glued on. Rubbed gold acrylic paint with finger along all edges then mounted on white cs base.

Tip: When taking pic’s of cards, use a 12×12 pp as back ground and a solid base. My base is a bamboo tray that dried fruit was mailed in and I turn it upside down. I have several different colors of sheets for the bg that I pick from depending on the subject and that sheet leans against the side of my workstation. I do try and clear off the work space part before I start a new project.

  1. Well now that is some background. Tons of texture but loved searching for all of your stamped elements. Very interesting and pretty awesome, too!

      1. OMG…I love it! My excuse is that I’m using 1/4 of our unfinished side of our basement so the more space I have the more mess I create. You are so neat!

  2. Ohhhh! At first, I was searching for the “M” but then I read your post and I see the mixed media. Very creative and different. Thanks for linking up with us at Double D Challenge.

  3. Yours is wild and wonderful. A layer wouldn’t have been quite right with this. You have so many details and all the texture, the plain white around the edges lets it stand out. It’s always so much fun seeing your creations. Thanks for sharing how you do your pictures, too.
