March is here, almost spring! Dragonflies flitting around a babbling brook. Blues, greens, purple glittering in the sunlight. Dragonflies darting from reed to reed, (a dragonfly book, a story about a dragonfly, a book shaped like a dragonfly. A dress made of gossamer wings, a dress made like gossamer wings, tin cans wired together for the long segmented body. Golf balls painted with metallic paint, wire antennae, a koosch ball abdomen. A rubber stamp to paint the walls stenciled on stationary, a coat, appliqued and decorated with metallic threads and beads, shinny glittery fabric, feathers. Quilt a gigantic dragonfly, a kite, scarecrow dragonfly. Design new clothes using the shapes, colors, textures, of a dragonfly. Or the opposite use, an old bunch of leaves from the cornfield and a corncob to fashion a plain and simple dragonfly. Hairpins and beads, marbles wire and clay. A wire sculpture. A mosaic, with paper, glass, beads, leaves, scrap metal, an environmental sculpture in the grass, using natural items found on the earth where you are. Think of a way to recreate a dragonfly... Where have you seen dragonfly designs? Tiffany lamps, clothing, pins, illustrations in books, are some examples. Now it's your turn to come up with some ideas.
