I looked through rockmelon’s pinterest boards for inspiration as I sat at my art desk. This picture spoke to my heart, I’ve always had a thing for dragonflies.


This is my interpretation of the inspiration prompt.


The black background was hard to photograph, you can see my brush strokes, but it really is just plain black. Below are steps of how I achieved my dragonfly.

These Carven Magic Dots are superb at holding masks or stencils in place while spraying ink sprays or using paint.  They always come off super clean.  Make sure the paper is 100% dry or the paper will peel off when you try to remove the dots.  In Australia you can buy them at Eckersley’s Art & Craft Supplies, they also post orders.



And a little zentangling on the edge to finish my page off…
