This week’s dragon is a wall piece, like Fergus, who I made back in week 28.
If you’d like to keep up with my dragon creations this year, I’ve made a Thursday’s Dragon Pinterest board just for them.
Click on any of the photos for a closer look.
In fact, Marsali is a companion piece to Fergus. I thought he looked a little lonely up there on my wall and so made him a friend.
Like on Fergus the leaves are bits and pieces of canes I’d made while working through Christi Friesen’s book, Flourish.
For Marsali I also used several different flowers that Christi teaches in her book.
I had fun addding lots of mixed media to this piece, including pearls, seed beads, crystals, wire, broken bits of jewelry and even an amazonite stone. Touches of mica powders and Gilder’s pastes add some final sparkle and shine.
I just love working on pieces like this with lots of texture, colors and so much to look at. There’s something about them that’s very satisfying.
