Repeat patterns

It's week 8 at DLP and we are on layers you will love / repeating elements/ it's worth repeating.

My gesso coated pages got a random covering of  Decoart sun yellow, distress stain crushed olive & some pearlescent yellow acrylic ( no details known!)

Out came the stencils (mini chicken wire & mini hexagons) I used scattered straw & mustard seed with the chicken wire and wild honey through the hexagons, I also did some of the larger shapes in gesso with a touch of yellow added.

I added some sunflower border strips, honey jar, hive & bee that were from some free papers
Stamped some hexagon shapes using Colorbox stylus.

Added some small bees around the pages + a queen bee / bee happy. All the bees have had their wings painted with tattered angels glim glam chandelier.

The larger hex were edged with dark wash & the stamped ones I did with a brown pen/damp paintbrush, I might go over those with a bit more water to tone them down a touch!

A bright page on a wet & wintry day....we've had rain, sleet & snow!
