playing with different mediums today during Hurricane Sandy... this is an 8x10 flat canvas panel.  I made three dragonflies with a push mold and polymer clay.  Once they were baked, I spread spackle over most of the canvas, and dragged a line maker thingy through it.  (very technical term).  I put a little crystal glaze on the backs of the hardened clay and pressed it into the spackle.  Then I spread some spackle along the edges of the squares.  Those suckers aren't going anywhere! LOL

I painted the entire thing with white gesso, then did the dragonfly squares with shimmery watercolors.  Covered the rest of the piece with a matte medium... and I'm calling it done.  Much starker than I normally do - but I like it!
