A Bee's Habitat and Another Goody

After Carolyn from The Crafty Scrapper came back from CHA, she issued a canvas challenge to make a habitat. Well....after a false start, this is what I have come up with. I'm not sure that this is what anyone had in mind, but it is what I have.

There is a lot of dimension. The beehive has three layers and the top layer does curve.

The bottom grass layer curves as well.



I'm wondering if I need to do anything else to it.


I did make a LO using a photo that Marie Q made of my boys. I was very nervous about doing this because of the monotary investment. But I really wanted to make a LO for my scrapping area if it ever gets completed.

I love bumble bees!

Maybe if you do a little distressing on the the texture pattern on the hive it won't look like such a vast space of yellow? Even if you just took a slightly deeper, browish yellow to it in a light wash here & there, like where a natural shadow would hit it'd be enough?

Other than that I love it!
