Brenda's natural artistry on display...

Hi there!

With a blog called 'Bumblebees and Butterflies' it's no wonder that this theme is right up Brenda's street.  Ever the artist, her natural creative flair has come to the fore with this beautiful, imaginative tag...

This is my second piece for the bugs, bees and butterflies challenge and of course to go with my blog title I needed to do a bee piece. I love the layered dies with embossing folders and the way you create immediate texture relevant to the image. This one has been 'rusted' and painted with several layers to get the effect I thought made it seem more life like.

Most people know that Brenda is an avid fan of Tim Holtz but, whether you follow him or not, who could not be impressed by this tag? This is stunning Brenda, so very creative - thank you!

Just to let you know, Brenda will be holding another workshop for Country View Crafts on November 27th - Winter Wonderland Shadow Box...

The venue is easy to reach by car or rail with excellent amenties...

Come on then folks, get out your crafty items, your papers, paints, inks, stamps, dies and anything else you might have to get crafting.  We're giving you the heads up, a crafty wink, a heavy hint..... we're having a special Magpie Day on Saturday with a little surPRIZE but you have to have entered the challenge to be in with a chance of being part of it!  Hmmmmm, are you getting our drift? lol!

I'll be back on Thursday with my second project, a piece of home decor, which I hope you'll like so I hope to see you then.  >:o)
