Blog Hop Club Post and Giveaway

Dragonfly Gelli Print Collage


Today is my turn to take part in the Blog Hop Club blogposting.


Totem Animals was the chosen topic and I wasn't exactly sure what that was but I have been painting dragonflies for a few years now but have never created a dragonfly gelli print collage.

I used some scrap prints in a blue-green colour for the dragonfly and the grass, for the background I created this yellow-orange print on A4 large paper to contrast with the dragonfly and the grass. I used a glue stick to glue the papers down into my black art journal. I've kept it simple, usually I outline everything but my paint pens hate me and have decided not to. 


I created this card as a thank you for friends and to test out my project.






Some of my dragonfly acrylic paintings:
