Stitch Meditation - the Scarab Beetle

I have been working on this scarab beetle over the last few nights and I will add it to a page in my textile journal that I am trying to finally get put together. This one has a few things of interest for me. It is printed on hand dyed (procion dye) cotton and then screen printed with lumiere metallic paint from a freezer paper print stencil I made. The space dyed threads down his wings are also hand dyed (procion again) and the bead embellishments are just part of what I had on hand.
