pressed flowers and water dragons?:-)
yep, that's what happened this time!:-)
a custum order for the holidays...a dragon with a santa hat?...whatever was i going to do?...
well, my dear friend jacki, vice-president of the world wide pressed flower guild... www.wwpfg.org ...recently taught a class through the guild about marbling paper...i was lucky enough to be the recipient of some of jacki's beautiful papers:-)
i think i found just the right use for this one!:-)...thank you, jacki!:-)
this little water dragon is made from rose petals generously donated by fearrington village weddings... http://www.fearrington.com/house/weddings.asp ...his spots are tiny leaves:-)
i snagged a few pointsettia leaves from my holiday plant for his wings...i thought they were quite festive!:-)
japanese maple leaf tips for his fiery tongue and miscellaneous bits and pieces of this and that to finish the piece...
and that's how we got to pressed flowers and water dragons!:-)
