take time every day to appreciate the beauties of nature..



another art journal page for the milliande group..this time I experimented with gold and silver pens with acrylic paints and indian inks in aqua brushes. I used some celtic stamps too on this page..it was quite difficult to photograph though but think I have captured the delicacy of the dragonfly wings. My youngest son has been off school sick so have been looking after him ..hope everyone is well in your home

This is stunning! The borders look 3-D, I had to double click and have a closer to look! The dragonfly is beautiful and you have definately captured the delicacy of the wings. Dragonfly is my totem animal so seeing this piece of work made my day! x

I am also a Lover of Dragonflies!!
The colors and textures are beautiful. Such an intricate and delicate balance in the Dragonfly wings.
This would be lovely as a wall hanging or turned into cards as well!

Hugs,

Susan
