Graffiti inspired funky dragonfly

studded dragonfly body
for the body, I used a chair leg, painted it distressed black and studded it with 
thumbtacks from the dollar store. 
 I sanded the tacks after they were hammered in to give them a brushed look.

I created a layered paint finish trying to give it the look of an old
worn sign with numbers and letters.

I've moved to to focus on my mosaic art. I'm no longer creating dragonflies or mermaids.
