Botanical Mixed-Media

Hi Friends! 
I hope everyone's had a great summer!  
I've been working on some mixed-media pieces lately, and one of 
the things that recently inspired me again, is this dragonfly.
Isn't she pretty? 
My new neighbor, Camille has only known me for a short time, but she
 knew me enough to know that when she found this poor little dragonfly 
in her garage, that I might appreciate it too.  I'd say she was right! 

I'm not sure I can work the dragonfly into one of my mixed-media pieces 
without damaging it, so I might just continue to photograph it as a 
botanical piece...this is a start. 

So, after the dragonfly, I started
 to get out the paint, paper and my pressed flowers and leaves again.

My desk continues to be a mess.

I picked out a fern leaf from our garden, 
and some hydrangea petals I pressed last year for this piece. 

My sewing machine has been calling to me too, so I added machine 
stitching on the sides. (above) 

There's just something so relaxing about …
