The other morning the kids and I found this dragonfly injured on the driveway. So after the kids got to hold him, in the garden he went. This picture turned out awesome! I really didn’t want to take away from the picture so this layout is nice and simple.

I loved this paper from KaiserCraft and loved the pattern, so I only did minimal gesso and stenciling on the background.

After using some Creative Embellishments and Petaloo for the clusters. I got out my Gelatos to add some color the dragonfly’s.
