I paper pieced the dragonflies using scraps. For my twist I used part of an encyclopedia page. The word "Mixed" is on one wing. It made me happy to use that word on my mixed media card. I did burned glue for the centers of the flowers. I painted over the burned glue with yellow acrylic paint. I painted the petals with white acrylic paint. I put glitter on the dragonflies. I added a layer of cheescloth.

Your card is so creative and beautiful, from your delicate dragonflies to your textured daisies. I love all the techniques you used. Thank you for the introduction to the burnt glue technique. I watched a few videos and will definitely try it.
