Home & Garden Altered Book

I wanted to try cutting  a niche in this book...something I haven't experimented with before and it turned out great.  I didn't make it overly deep, just deep enough to hold the brass dragonfly.   And I had a nice piece of scrap paper to put behind it that has a touch of metallic to it.  These pages are about some of the smaller "critters" in nature....those that fly.  Sometimes, in our childhood days...we could be frightened by these critters....they are kind of weird looking...but for some reason I was thinking about the many dragonflies that may have landed on my arm at one time or another and I wasn't bothered by them at all...they are rather fascinating.  They move quietly about.  If they could talk...what would they have to say about life....what would their observations be?
