This border features a symmetrical dryad (a wood spirit), plus various foliage. The first picture shows the basic unit (large format) which doesn't make much sense as the dryad has been cut in two! You mirror this pattern to produce the final picture. The second picture (in a smaller format) show a way that you can do this. I've added a border to produce a neat result. The third picture shows how you can repeat the pattern; this can obviously be extended as far as you wish.

I haven't done the dryad separately, as I have for the other creatures, as she is practically the whole pattern already!
