I used freezer paper cutouts for the dragonfly, then drew in details with a sharpie and used water soluble colored pencils to add touches of color. In the tree composition, I had already drawn the trees with a sharpie, then I put a butterfly linocut block into paint I had rolled onto the plate. For the leaves, I rolled the paint on the plexiglass, spritzed it to keep it moist enough to work with, then put cut paper shapes and real dried leaves down for a resist. When that was dry, I painted dandelion leaf and flower stencils for contrast in the deep blue.
