This is how I wanted to show off ArteDar’s challenge this week, a bug or insect, but alas I didn’t get it finished until after the cut off time. Fortunately for me I at least got the dragonfly tweeted to @ArteDar.
A bit of background about this page: the face is from this year’s 29Faces in Feb #21. Dana and I talked about her expression and we both agree that she looked like she had just popped around a tree and found a cute bug, or maybe a bird. But because this was the bug/insect week I chose a dragonfly (love ‘em),
The background is a 12 x 12 scrapbook paper cut down to 8 ½ x 11, adhered onto cardstock. Tree trunk (or door however you look at it) is some Timmy card, the flowers are layered Tim Holtz tattered floral die; the leaves are (a gift from Dede that she had won but couldn’t use) Lawn Fawn die – stitched leaves die; the dragon fly is Elizabeth Craft Designs #712 die. Sweet girl is painted with acrylic craft paints.
And um yeah – Ta Dum
Happy Art’ing Y’all
