Bee-You-Tiful {Paper Issues Take 5 Challenge}

I played in the Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues and created this page:

To play in this challenge, you pick [at least] 5 things from the list. I used 6 things: chipboard, stripes, fussy cutting, patterned paper, label, and wood bits.

No automatic alt text available.

Here are some details. I was so glad to use that cute chipboard October Afternoon bee that I've had in my stash FOREVER. I fussy cut the leaves from an Amy Tangerine Cut & Paste paper to tuck behind these old yellow flowers. I made my own tag and cut a label in half so I could use it on both sides of my page.

I bought that bee paper, by Carolee's Creations a few years ago after a fiasco when yellow jackets had built a nest on my porch seat and I got stung, but I've never made that page. I'm glad I had it in my stash for this page!

The hexagon stencil by Crafter's Workshop was perfect to echo the beehive in the background of the bee paper. I added a little white acrylic paint to texture paste to use with the stencil so it would stand out more.

I'm pretty sure I used a sketch as inspiration for this page, but I couldn't find it again. If you know the source of the sketch, please let me know so I can give credit.

I hope you'll play in this or some of the other many fun challenges at Paper Issues for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.
