{Mixed Media Tutorial} Dragonflies and Popsicles

MariLynn here with a summer mixed media tutorial using Dragonfly Waltz stencil and the remains of a summer favorite. Popsicle sticks. You can save the from eating yummy popsicles or you can buy them.

I cut a piece of cardstock and glued the popsicles down to make a flat surface for my project

I used dragonfly waltz stencil and denim blue spray.

I used oil pastel to add a variant of colors with the dragonflies.

I added some fingernail polish over the dragonflies to give them an iridescent quality

I added some white paint and glitter to the dragonflies

I wanted some softness to my project so I added some cheesecloth and gold thread.

I had some mosaic paper that I freehand cut out a dragonfly. I added some glitter to the wings

I hope you were inspired by my project.


  1. What a great use of the popsicle sticks MariLynn - love how you layered the colours on the stenciled dragonflies too.


We love hearing from fellow crafters! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts with us :o)
