World of Color Round Robin - MaryBeth's Page

I made MaryJane's page for the World of Color Round Robin on Kindred Soul's Art Group. MaryBeth choose Blue & Green as her colors.
For the front & back, I used blue background papers and sprayed green Memory Mist over a floral stencil on the front, then flipped the wet stencil on the paper I'm using for the back and pressed the ink onto the paper.
 I used various green inks & paint to color card stock then stamped leaf outlines with green Distress Ink. Cut them out, folded them to add texture, opened the leaves, then creased to make the center.
Added shaped beaded blue flowers with little green bead center. Tore a strip of green fabric, fringed one edge and adhered to the bottom of the page. Glued blue batik fabric to grunge paper and used a die cut to cut out the butterfly shape. Glued the wings over green batik fabric and adhered to the page. Stamped a saying with Midnight Blue StazOn ink.
I stamped a dragonfly image on the back and colored it with blue  & green Distress markers. Added some blue perfect pearls (also to the crease on the leaves on the front of the page). 
 Wrote my name & date with metallic & glitter Gel pens. Colored the edges of the front and back papers with green acrylic paint. 
Hope MaryBeth likes her page.
