I basically just did my sketch of the dragonfly and flowers....and filled it in with color using watercolor pencil on the dragonfly. The background and flowers and everything else was painted. I used Stewart Gill Alchemy Iridescent Shimmer FUSION (green) and WATER NYMPH (purple) and the topcoat is Mod Podge SPARKLE...and then I just added some decoration and a quote
