B is for bee!

I have a phobia... to be more honest i have more than one phobias! I am afraid of insects and especially bees. The last 6 years as i live in a small town instead of the big city i used to live i have to deal everyday with my fear...especially during summer! Three days ago i had to give a battle with some bees...oh yes a real battle as bees decided to make their home at my balcony's lamp! I was frustrated....my hubby wasn't home so i had to fight with them by myself!  Don't laugh (although it was funny!) with a broom i tried to ruin their home and go back inside as a flash so as not to be stung by them! After four attempts and with my heart beating like a drum  i finally made it but then i felt sad about poor bees...

So to make amends to bees and as the given letter for week 13 at alpha dictionary challenge at craft barn  was B i made a page for them hopping one day i will be brave enough to be friend with them and not enemy. ...

So here is my entry:


I am still practicing with girl portraits so be kind with me...this must be my 7th attempt! Shading and symmetry are my  biggest problems... but i am working on it! I also believe that the watercolor paper of my journal doesn't  help me...Although it is heavy paper it crumbles when i put water on it even small amounts of water....that's why i ordered my first moleskine journal to take it with me during summer vacation hoping to dissolve the problem!


I wish you all a nice weekend  and don't forget Hacuna Matata everybody :)

  2. I love your page, it's stunning. The portrait is beautiful. I don't mind bees even though I've been stung a couple of times but I understand because my son doesn't like bees either.

  8. I love your bright colourful pages and funny story. Your girl is very good for only your 7th attempt - shading is practice. I have been doing a class and for faces and bodies they say for the bits which stick out eg nose, front shoulder - lighten and for areas which go in darken the colours eg under eyes, under neck, one side of the face. Hope this helps.
