Happy Buzzing and good luck!!

For my project today, I decided to make a frame using a plain wood frame I picked up at Old Time Pottery for 69¢.  The finish was sanded down and then the frame was painted black.

The front was then covered with Mercurial Masterpiece from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection.  For this project, the 8×8 pad was used because the prints are smaller and more fitting for the small 2.5 x 3.5 frame.  The paper was glued to the frame with Ranger Glue n’ Seal, with the excess sanded from the sides and the middle.  The sanded areas were then sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

The sentiment was stamped in Archival Jet Black on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Long Rectangles.  While the paper was still in the die, it was sponged with Antique Linen.  The bees were stamped in Archival Sepia.

The flower is made from Exquisite Motif with the Bauble Blossoms One Die Template.   The paper was stenciled with Antique Linen while it was still in the die.  The middle of the flower was filled with Spiced Marmalade Distress Stickles.   One of the small bees from Parlor Wall was trimmed out from the paper and then adhered to the memo pin by filling the center with Glossy Accents.

The stem of leaves from Foliage and the two leaves from Bitty Blossoms were die cut from GrungePaper and colored with Forest Moss Distress Stain.   The upper right embellishment is one of the bee stickers from Olde Curiosity Shoppe which was stuck to a piece of printed chipboard and then trimmed out.  It is adhered to the frame with 3D Foam Adhesive.
