On a 4x4 base of art board, I added texture through a stencil with TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste. I added color with diluted Distress Oxide in Bundled Sage and after drying, I added a deeper, green watercolor - I love the oxidation marks from water splashes!
I grabbed an old embellishment kit from my stash, 49 + Market's Dragonfly Revolution, and mixed and matched some leaves and vines with a dragonfly.
I added a clear sticker and backed a bright sticker with black cardstock to finish off this simple, little piece.
I highly encourage some art abandonment from time to time - it's a way to get our encouraging "play" out into the world to bless somebody. I call it, "Creative Acts of Kindness"
