The Buzz Word - Mixed Media Layout

Hi all,

I finally finished a layout that has been sitting around for about a month because I didn't know what to use for the title.

But today I've been making some things, finishing stuff off and I finally came up with.... The Buzz Word...! I thought it was cool, anyway... 

I took the picture of the bee on my parents' Spirea(sp?) plant and I spent some time playing around with my camera settings to get the perfect shot...

I started off by cutting down a sheet of 12x12" plain white cardstock by a couple of centimetres each side.
I scribbled down the page with a pink gelato and smudged it with my finger.
I took a hexagon stencil and sprayed through it with Dylusions spray in Funky Fuchsia. Once I had sprayed the ink I flipped the stencil over and 'stamped' the reverse around the page. 

The flowers and leaves are from dies by Xcut. The leaves are created by using the packaging technique on some scrap white cardstock with green inks. Instead of fiddling around with tape, I stuck the die cut leaves onto this with matte medium. This worked really well because they gave the leaves a cool shiny texture, a bit like real leaves. 

Thanks for stopping by!
