It's been a few months since I've had a dragonfly post so I thought
I'd share the latest ones PLUS I'm having a 2013 Black Friday
sale in my Etsy shop starting Thanksgiving night.
All dragonflies and butterflies will be $25 off regular price...
They make a unique artful gift!
This chair leg body with the pink fleur de lis wings
had little seashell eyes
This design has been one of my most popular
Another pink butterfly version.
Of course, had to make pink fleur de lis dragonflies too...
Greens, pinks and fleur de lis in white with swirls...
These had super long bodies!
Another popular design...the peacock feather dragonfly...
Edged in a little leopard print.
Then I did something a little different and cut an actual
feather shape for the wings on this Peacock Dragonfly
I liked how the feather shape turned out
I made a peacock feather with leopard trim butterfly too
vintage porcelain doorknob for the head and an aged
latch on the body.
This one was a custom order and it was super big,
about 3 1/2 feet wide
I added this vintage metal knob at the tail
I made a regular size metal strap wing dragonfly for the shop
I aged this metal strapping myself using my technique I wrote about
in the How to Make Things Rusty and Aged Post
I went bright and funky with this colorful dragonfly
He has a porcelain vintage door knob for his head...
And a colorful ceramic knob at the tail
I love all these colors together.
These next two were also custom orders...
She had specific colors and patterns for her dragonflies.
Aged corrugated metal for the wings on one of them.
I've had three zebra butterflies lately.
This one has a latch on the body and metal keys for eyes.
A ceramic knob at the tail...
And I love the carved detail on this body.
I've got zebra dragonflies too
This one has a studded body
This is such a cool twisted spindle on this dragonfly
I ended up adding little metal beads to it as well.
I've made this style before. It is a lady bug wing dragonfly
A cute little ladybug painted on the wing
I used copper pipe for his antenna
Another pretty painted dragonfly with striped and swirled wings
Funky fork antenna
I painted the design then added a brown wash to
tone it down and give it an aged look.
I painted a chevron design dragonfly
This is actually my very first venture into chevron or ikat print look
Thank you for sticking through all the pictures and taking a
look at all my dragonflies!
Be sure to visit my Etsy shop to save $25 for
Black Friday 2013.
Sale starts 12am Central Time the day after Thanksgiving
