HoneyBee Showcase - Spirelli - March 9th

Welcome to the HoneyBee Showcase!  I know you've been waiting since Monday to see the new Spirelli designs, since Rosemary's awesome tutorial!  June and Wanda have beautiful examples to get you started.  Please forgive me for not having mine ready... I am out of town tending to my Mom who is in the hospital with pneumonia.  I will post it as soon as I can get it ready and photographed.  Gotta love on our Mom's while we have the chance.   *****It' a wrap! This was my first try with spirelli. Thanks for the great tutorial on Monday's post, Rosemary. This was completely new to me.

I went searching through my stash for something fun and fine to wind, and I came across this variegated fiber. I chose an image from my Accent Essentials cricut cartridge and cut it twice. I glued the two cut images together for support so that the card stock would not warp as I wrapped.

I accented the center with navy linen card stock with a daisy punched in the center. I layered over a brown paper lunch bag that I spritzed and crinkled several times. After the lunch bag dried, I painted the lunch bag with Lumiere paint. I layered on a circle of mirror paper.

This was a quick and easy technique. I hope you'll give it a twirl!

Other supplies: 3D glue dots, augusta green linen card stock (base), ponderosa pine linen card stock, Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder, silver paint pen, and a dragonfly charm by Embellish It!

I had so much fun doing this.. What a great idea.. Thanks Rosemary!
