100 Day Project Mini 7 | Days 61-70 "The Bee & Her Garden"
Alongside my main 100 Day Project (where I added one element to the same piece of paper for 100 days), I created 5x7 minis as a way to capture every 10 marks!
Each day when I made my mark on my main project, I did the same thing on my mini and began a new mini every 10 days. It was a way to highlight the different techniques and elements that were added (since a lot of the markings--especially the early ones--get covered or altered as the project progresses) and it was also an exploration in scale and creating in a shorter time frame.
I had so much fun making each of these minis and they have become so special to me! I hope you enjoy them as well!
One of the early marks for this mini was created using a hot glue gun stencil that featured a circular shape. It reminded me of a beehive and that became the theme for this mini. I used different patterns and techniques that reminded me of hives, bees, flowers, and honey to layer and add to this piece.
