Making a Hand Painted Bee-utiful Pillow

I made this pillow and it was a little boring.

Even the little bow I made for it didn't help much!

I was inspired by a few bee signs made by Michael from Inspired by Charm. He made beautiful bees on his signs and I wanted to paint something similar on my pillow. 

What's the worst that could happen? That I hate it? 

So with Michael's bee inspiration I painted the pillow.
