nature themed mosaics. 

Leaf Wing Dragonfly
That's quite a range in that post title but I thought I'd group all my
latest dragonflies in this one post!

hand painted ladybug art
For this one, I cut leaf shaped wings out of wood
and added paint and a lady bug

Went a little funky with this one and gave it a Mardi Gras theme

I added this ceramic piece at the tail...can you tell what it is?...
It's a purse shaped cork stopper turned upside down.

hand painted giraffe design dragonfly
I'm always making zebra and leopard dragonflies and butterflies so
I had to add a giraffe print in the mix too

More rusty eyes and antenna. I added those little brass
rivets to the body by predrilling small holes and pounding them in
