Gauche Project - The Busy Bee

My latest project for
Gauche Alchemy
has just been posted on their blog
and all the process details can be seen

(The Busy Bee Has No Time For Sorrow)
I decided to play with a canvas this time,
but used the back rather than the front.
The back was far more interesting and 
meant I had a lovely rough, chunky frame
to work with, around a much smaller canvas.


Everyone at Gauche has such a different style
and the blog posts lots of different projects
and how-to videos. I can recommend you
pop over regularly (I'm a follower, of course, 
which means I don't miss anything). 
 They share loads of different
techniques and ideas, and I've learnt such a
lot in the short time I've been with them.

If you do pop over, be sure to say 'hi'
to the Gauche girls - they'd LOVE to know 
you visited and if you enjoyed it.

I love how this has worked so well by turning the canvas over & the honeycomb is perfect.
You are a very Busy Bee !

I must keep that saying in mind a I sit on my bot and look at the rain. You are such an inventive little soul, who knew that you could make honeycomb look so authentic.
