Bees Do Matter

I had a go at the blackout newspaper/magazine prompt from Get Messy Art Journaling.

Supplies: patterned paper (MME), newspaper article (Toronto Star), gesso (Golden), Tim Holtz Distress Paint and Glue n' seal (Ranger), Hexagon stencil (The Crafter's Workshop), foliage stencil (Magenta), B6 pencil (Faber-Castell), stamp (CTMH), ink (Tsukineko), Inktense watercolour pencil crayons (Derwent)

Some close ups...

My take is not so simplified but I am really pleased with how it turned out. It conveys how I feel about the current bee debate. If you are interested in reading the full article, it is "What's the real story behind bee deaths?" by Catherine Porter.

Bees matters and it's so sad to see how pesticides affect them. Luckily, restrictions are tougher here in Norway, so we haven't seen the same mass deaths. In fact, organic agriculture is very "in" so lots of farmers use bees to increase pollination :-)

Lovely one layer card - love your mix of tecniques and materials!
