soartful challenge-Dragonfly

Wow, it's been a while since I've played in a challenge. I love dragonflies--they are such etherial yet solid creatures-- that this week's Soartful theme seemed a good place to start. I began with the bug himself, and the waterlilies and it grew from there. the Chinese character is "Happiness"
Thanks to Dover and Art-e-zine for the images, and to Rubyblossom and Boccacino for texture and text. Some watercolor and grunge Photoshop brushes were used as well.
Thanks for visiting.
