Moxie Fab Hexagon Challenge!

Hey all. It's been several weeks since I used this blog...but who has the time when you spend all your time creating beautiful stuff right?

So I just happened to run across this neat o challenge today. I expect I saw it before, and just skimmed over it in my newsletters from Paper Crafts. But I was looking here at the MOXIE FAB WORLD today and saw that tonight is the deadline. Well, I love a good challenge, so I started messing around with it. My protractor stinks I discovered, and a new one was added to my wish list. (Just in time for back to school shopping too!)

I finally came up with some hexagons I was happy with and then decided an art journal episode was the direction I wanted to go. So I Gessoed a new page, and cut out about a million hexagons from an old shopping bag, a sheet of music that was laying around and an old piece of HOTP patterned paper I've been saving for something special (vintage blue roses), while I waited for it to dry.

I smeared on some pink and green paint drips with a dry brush, and glued down my hexagons in a pleasing to me pattern. Some are kinda crooked...oh well. I'm not a bee.

Anyway. From beginning to end this took me about 4 hours of fun and games. I enjoyed this project very much and might have to read the challenges more regularly. Thanks Cath!

And without further ado--here is my Art Journal page, with a quote from The Secret Life of Bees.

I really hope you all enjoy it too!
