I had a project in my mind but it was not coming together so after seeing a fellow team member's post, I decided to go with Queen Bee. My mom passed away in April and her name was Molly Beatrice and she was our Queen Bee. There are three other Bea's in the family: Bonnie Bea, Carrie Bea, and Elaina Bea.
The bee image and the crowns are from The Graphic Fairy which I cut out. A wonderful site for images to use on your projects. I also used the wings from a couple smaller versions of the bee that I had also printed.
I had a piece of patterned paper that I applied to my canvas and added a few pieces of dictionary pages. I wrinkled some tissue paper and added that in several areas to add some texture. Different layers of paint were added. I did a little stamping with a new stamp. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and some bright pink embossing paste to add the flowers. A Donna Downey stencil was used to add the pink splots on the left side. I also had a stamp set I had never used which the Queen Bee comes from and that was stamped on tissue paper. I also stamped the bees around the canvas.
Here is a close up of the embossed paste flowers.
Here is a close up of the wings on the side of the canvas and the pink embossing paste. You can see some of the wrinkled tissue paper and the stamped bees.
Come play along with us. Bring your "royalty" out to play.
Thanks for stopping by.
