Choose To Shine

Hi everyone!Melissa here with a page for Reneabouquet!I made this page to fit around the queen bee at the right. The photo inspired me too, the crown is kind of medieval looking.

To make this page I used Blue Fern paper for the background. I used a credit card to apply texture paste with a stencil. I put two layers of foam cord board between the photo and the background.I arranged the chipboard and flowers around, then picked some colors to use.  I painted the frame with Finnabair Ancient Coin Acrylic Paint, then applied a thick layer of Rock Candy Crackle.

I glued on the metal bee with clockface, put a little gesso on, and topped it with layers of paint and Finnabair White Gold Wax.

The areas that are white on the page are gesso with layers of watercolors.

To add visual interest I added mica flakes, metal glitter, diamond glitter,seed beads, micro beads, more chipboard,glass beads, moss, dried flowers, crystals, charms, tulle, gauze, Beautiful Beads, pearls, and more.
The area on the right is layers of blue and lavender Shimmerz, and diamond glass glitter, some gesso, and more Shimmerz watercolor in a pale peach color.

I painted the leaf chipboard with gesso, Shimmerz  green and brown watercolors, and topped it with Clear Rock Candy.

The Queen Bee is a beauty, with her glass wings,delicate colors, bling, and dimensional quality.

I painted the flowers with gesso,lavender Shimmerz, and Finnabair Acrylics.

I rubbed almost everything on the page with Finnabair White Gold Wax, it tied all the elements together I think.
