One for Me



After doing several bug 3D snips for friends, I decided to do one for me. This took me around 3 hours.

This is a honey bee. I need to go back and add some stripes on his abdomen. The flower is a bull thistle.

Snipping is my mental refuge from getting through the last three weeks of school.

That is a very cool snip. I had to take a closer look at it because at first it looked like more than 4 layers I think it is because of the overlap of the thistles on each layer.
I feel your pain on school our kids are looking at 5.5 days and for the most part are already on vacation.
