Dragonfly Pond

Hey fellow crafters. I have been so remiss in keeping up with my blog. I don't have a lot of pictures to post which I find is what people are looking for. INSPIRATION - I like so many out there get in a rut and just can't get the creative mojo going. I love Marjie Kemper's Texture Tuesday because who doesn't like art with lots of texture.

I came across one from Ingrid's Craft Corner and I was just mesmerized. Of course, I am addicted to dragonflies and butterflies and tim's new layered dies are just fabulous. I decided to try Ingrid's technique of mixing gesso with clear embossing powder. WOW that was fun. Heating that up until it bubbled and sparkled all over was a kick.

My oldest daughter's birthday was October 14th so I made this with her in mind. I just mailed it up to her so we'll find out soon her reaction. I sure hope she likes it.

Please make sure and visit Ingrid's Craft Corner to see the original piece. She was gracious enough to let me post her link.


  1. Hi Janine! You've done such a wonderful job here! The texture you created is amazing! I'm so glad you enjoyed the technique. Thank you for letting me repost your gorgeous make on my blog! Hugs,

    1. thank you Donna. It really was fun doing her texture technique of gesso and embossing powder.

  3. If she doesn't like it I sure do!!! I will have to try this technique as well. The heating gun is one of my favorites, especially since it is snowing outside today. TFS! ~Niki
