Queen On The Scene

No comments
Well it's finally starting to feel like spring here - the sun is shining, the snow is melting and it's getting into plus temperatures.  Seems about the perfect time to share a wonderful summery image with you!

I was originally going to make this into a layered card, but I changed my mind to create myself a framed scene for my art wall.  This allowed for some overhang with the honeycomb.

'Aja Queen Bee' is a brand new image this month - isn't she gorgeous?  I love those bold sunflowers. I fussy-cut her after colouring so I could pop her up onto my scene. 

I started with a rectangle of blue card to represent the sky.  This is cut to 5.5" x 6" as this is the size of card blank I was going to use. 

Next I cut two layers of clouds, measuring to the height I wanted from the bottom of the blue card. 

I cut two layers of hills also. 
Next I glued everything on in layer order to create my scene. 
I decided I wanted quite a natural frame, so I cut a Kraft piece the same size as the blue card and cut a rectangle out of the centre ¼" in each side. I used strips of card underneath this to match all the layers so it would lay flat over the scene. 

I cut a honeycomb shape and positioned it at an angle in the bottom left corner, overhanging the edges.  I used 3D foam squares to place the image on top of this. 

Lastly I added some glittery bee stickers to complete my scene and some ribbon to hang it up.

You can find this image, along with many others in the Etsy Store
