created by hand "dreams" challenge



I had the idea to alter a jar for my seashells whilst in my yoga class this afternoon. I always get loads of creative ideas when I do yoga hence the yoga pic at the top of my blog! This glass jar is covered with sea related acetates with dry brush paint on the actual jar and behind the acetates so you can see them. I have strung beads, charms and wire curls on some string around the top. The words around the top read "seashore dreams waves crash shells pebbles rocks blue skies calm escape" so this is a sort of poetry to the sea jar. I love collecting shells on my beach trips and this jar will let me dream about the sea in the middle of winter! hence its called seashore dreams.
