I had great fun designing the background in Photoshop Elements and then printing it out on printable linen from Craft Computer Paper. I've used hand embroidery, machine embroidery and quilting techniques to finish this picture.
The fabric for the Yo Yo flowers and fence were also designed in Photoshop and then printed on different printable fabrics. The wonderful big button is a vintage button from the lovely Siri - thank you Siri!
The Fimo crown was made using a mould and finished with a touch of gold. The mini-frame is from K&Co - I didn't make it :)
The bees were a little bit of Turkey Rug stitch and the wings were wire on organza hand stitching and then the bees were applied to the picture with a little bit of stump work.
There is nothing like learning as you go along -as many of these techniques are new to me, so I was tickled pink to get a Highly Commended from Crafty Computer Paper for my attempt :)
Have a Bee Buzzy Day
