Wow...it has been about a week and a half since I last posted a project! School has been taking up so much of my free time. I have had a lot of tests recently for my EMT class and I have been working on all my skills necessary for passing the national registry exam. I am nervous about it, but I have been doing well, so I think I will be okay. I have two more weeks of classes, then I will be done and hopefully able to craft and post more regularly. I have really missed crafting on a regular basis. Anyways, that aside, here is the project I made today:
I have been wanting to make something like this for a long time now. I just didn't have an exact idea in mind. All I knew was that I wanted our monogram, the letter "B" and some bees. Well, the challenges at Bitten by the Bug 2 and My Sheri Crafts were the perfect incentive I needed to create my wall decor. I used a patterned background paper, but wanted a little more texture and definition behind my features, so I created a honeycomb background using Garden Soup and my Gypsy. The letter "B" is cut at 8," the bee on the lower left is 4" and the bee on the upper right is cut at 3 1/2." I used a lot of pop-dots and foam adhesive for my bees. I then put it in a white shadowbox frame and hung it on my wall. I love it and so does my husband!
