The Accidental Dragonfly

As promised I am back to share what I made with Tim Holtz’ Layered Dragonfly die and embossing folder set. Remember from yesterday I was in need of cards. Way behind am I in sending out birthday cards.


A while ago I made some spray inks with distress re-inkers and just test sprayed them on a sheet of paper. This caught my eye so I used it as my background designer paper. My own paper!!! how cool is that.


The verse is me trying to embrace my own handwriting (that “d” in penmanship still haunts me). The stripe of numbers is also an accident it was left over from a journal page..I slapped that on too. And my final layer is the dragonfly cut from the packaging it came in. It was a bit to clear for my taste and that lead to the last happy accident a whole journal page.


I want to add some Prima Color Bloom spray in Storm Cloud to the plastic dragonfly die cut. And being the 10/dollar girl that I am; I did not want to waste the overspray. I laid it onto a gessoed page in my journal and sprayed away! And this is what happened The sprayed looked heart shaped so I enhanced it with a charcoal pencil and blending stump.


BONUS journal page for today done! Oh by the way I love the Prima Color Bloom sprays!

Oh and by the by I killed my old YouTube channel and have a new one elonqp; I’d love if you subscribed. Thanks!
