Honey Bee Arch - Tando Creative

Hi! I'm sharing an arch I created for the Anything Goes theme this week on the Tando Creative Design Blog. I created a honey comb from the Gothic Arch Layered Frame and a piece of Round Grid. I covered the back panel and four frames of the Gothic Arch and a piece of Round Grid first with DecoArt White Gesso and then with a coat of DecoArt Primary Yellow Fluid Acrylic Paint. Once dry, I distressed the pieces with DecoArt English Red Oxide Antiquing Cream.

Next, I added some stamping, embossing and some acrylic paint highlights in blue. I then glued the frame together and wrapped the edge with floral fabric tape.

I added some Tom Petty song lyrics with Dymo tape, some teal star sequins and a real bee that my friend found in her yard. (I hope I'm not the only person who loves to be gifted with insects to use on my art projects!) I finished this piece by filling in the frame with resin.

You can find the chipboard I used for this project, and a wonderful selection of DecoArt products, in the Tando Creative Retail Store.
