Just Beee .... a little blog giveaway !

I had so much fun with this little canvas project 
that celebrates are a coupla firsts for me : 
made my first music paper type flowers
 ( using Jillibean Soup's Chicken Bouillon pp ) 
using a tutorial by Lotus Paperie
Now I  totally understand why making your
 own handmade paper flowers is soo addictive !!!

This is also the first time I tried a Glimmer Misted background on canvas 
&I  just love how unpredictable it was & the result ! 
I used Candy Cane Red , Yellow Meringue , Olive Gold & Tattered Leather. 

All papers used here are by Jillibean Soup -
mainly from the Chicken Noodle on white collection . 
A little handcut leaves , some paper twirling & curling , punched leaves .
Misted two of the "music sheet " flowers . 
I also used a little bit of everything else that's JBS -
 a little full stop from their corrugated alpha set for the flower center, cardstock buttons, canvas flower.

The cute bee here is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety chipboard set.

& I'd like to give this away to a  randomly picked follower . ;) 
Just for fun !
(I will ship anywhere in the world .)

Just become a follower using the link on the upper right here =>

that's all !!

I will announce the winner in a week's time !

Wanted to stop and tell you that is so pretty! I was making a canvas project last night!!! Great minds think alike! I added the gesso to my canvas and it worked so well. The first one I did I didn't and I like the effect with it added so much better.

great flowers!!!
