I was feeling mixed media-ish recently, and needed to make an ATC for a trade. Out came the bee.
The background started as a scrap piece of painted paper. It had some really bright, neon colors on it. I washed over it with fluid acrylic quinacridone nickel azo which perfectly muted and transformed it. Next came some distressed book pages layered on top of each other and a piece of teal wire. The edges are finished off with some gold embossing powder. I colored the bee with Distress markers and Copics and then cut her out and slapped her on there with some foam adhesive.
I'm so happy with the way this turned out. :) Thanks for stopping by today.
