Just Bee You

I'm participating in a fun project that my friend, Janice at came up with - it's called Focus 52.  Anyone can participate & most that are, are doing 1 photograph a week; it's not too late if you want to join!  Thank you Janice for thinking of asking me to join this group, hope I can keep up! While there really aren't any "rules" per-say, this week's word was: begin. I've got to admit, I didn't pay attention to that, cuz had I, my brain would've farted & I'd have had nothing. In hindsight, however, I can say, this is my "BEEginning" hehehe.

I can't believe I completed this in 1 week - actually, it was more like 4 days. But here she is "Just Bee You." Her body is a beehive, and hopefully you can tell, she's a bee! LOL  I used acrylic paints, black marker, stamps, white & black dot stickers for the eyes, plastic bubble wrap, and some weird mesh-like cloth (I don't know what it's called). I used 2 items from my Grandma's collection: a song (in the beehive) and a rent/utilities receipt (on the blue floral paper, in the top right corner) - I copied the images onto cardstock. I also cutout cardstock flowers and used a printing of wheels. I added a stick-on bee, stick on flowers, some dried flowers, a sticker flower & a 3-D daisy.

Many of the ideas here I got from Kelly Rae Robert's book Taking Flight. If you're interested in getting crafty, I highly recommend this book to bring out your inner-artist.
