Bee Strong Video Tutorial

I love bee imagery - so I really had fun creating this canvas for today's video.  And this project is jammed full of great techniques that you will want to try yourself. 

So please join me, in my studio (via the wonderful world of YouTube!)

Prima: Stencils
Unity Stamps: Cooped Up Notes
Anna Griffin: Chipboard Letters
Tsukineko: StazOn Ink ( Jet Black)
StencilGirl - Wood Icing
Paper Napkin
Golden: Matte Medium

I played along with the Scrap Around the World challenge using their June Mood Board.
I pulled in some of the colors, but was also inspired by the diagonal stripes on the straws - and as you will see in my video - my canvas began with a diagonal striped background.  I also had to throw flowers in there (because, I do love my flowers).
