Well, I'm not really sure if I'm happy with this or not. I know I am going to have to do something to the background. I like the layout. And the things on it. But I'm just not sure.
The dragonfly sticks up about 1/4 inch or a little more at the highest point. Which is the body and where the wings connect. I built up under the wings by the body with modeling paste and then tapered them down to lay flat on the board. The top trim is lace. The flowers are dried from our woods. The long grasses are twisted tissue paper.
There are tiny dried leaves along the bottom. They show up better in person. In fact the whole piece is better in person.
So I think I'll live with it awhile and see if it needs something more or not.
