Summ, summ, summ! - a Calico Craft Parts Tag and Tutorial

"Summ, summ, summ" is German for "Buzz, buzz, buzz" and the title of this week's project over at Calico Craft Parts where it is my turn again to share a project done with some of the amazing craft parts from their incredibly wide range.

But first things first...

Hi and servus, dear crafty friends!
I am finally back from a several weeks break from crafting (and almost anything else) due to health issues and a stay at the hospital three - or is it already four? - weeks ago (I have lost track of time a little to be honest and am still on my way back to a normal daily routine). Not everything has been sorted out by now but I am much better already - and my muse luckily returned too when browsing my special Calico Craft Parts treasure box for some inspirational kick off (which gladly works most of the time).

The first wild bee has just hatched after a long long winter and left one of my three insect hotels on our balcony on sixth floor and that is something that always makes me very happy. The very first wild bee I met on our balcony some years ago tried to nest in one of the holes of our beach chair. As this is a hole that is used for tilting the back rest, I immediately went and bought our first insect hotel and luckily it was accepted by my little busy bee quite quickly.

So today's tag is inspired by the cute wild bees on our balcony and the gorgeous Calico Craft Parts from my stash! Yay!

This is just a detail shot - but perfect as a little sneak peek to lure you over to the Calico Craft Parts blog, where I am sharing a detailed tutorial and of course loads of images of the finished tag. Lots of mixed media techniques (using DecoArt paints and products) and hints on how to create amazing texture are awaiting you. ;)

Hugs and happy crafting!
