{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.
