BEE IN HER BONNET


My Bee in Her Bonnet atc isn't wonky - honest - its the background! I'm fed up with doing hand to hand combat with my scanner which shifts everything each time I close the lid so I'm afraid I'll have to ask you all to close one eye and squint to see her in her full glory. My lady with a hive on her head was made using my favourite sepia tones on a honey coloured acrylic background but I'm not sure it shows up very well in the photo. Such a simple idea for an atc - not so the execution. I found her very fiddly to put together and had lots of abortive attempts but, I obviously enjoyed the fiddle because I like her so much that I want to make several more now. The whole idea of using non-milinery items as headwear really appeals to me.

  1. He he he, she's great fun! Love it all, background, image, silly hat, and embellishments. Fabby, darling. Tip for the scanner - I always blu-tack my creations to some cardstock and place that on the scanner. It stays put beautifully. You heard it here first! xx

  14. your atc is hot! love her!

    as for scanning... yeah some of my things come out looking crooked, to complicate the matter I broke the hinge of the lid the first week I had it... so I have to avoid the gloom that gets in the side...
