A little glow and flicker for today.
I love it when a simple thing just...works.
I made this votive candle holder from a recycled jar, a cutout of a botanical image, some tissue paper and a touch of decoupage glue.
Glue the botanical image first, smoothing it carefully. Mine is an Iris as my Mum loved them and we planted hundreds in the yard as a memorial to her.
Then take plain white tissue wrapping paper, and glue a layer of this over the top. It gives a translucent effect to the jar, and fades the image slightly, softening it a little.
Allow to dry, then place a tealight inside, light it, and enjoy.
It's far from perfect, but that only adds to the texture and pleasure of the flickering candle.
A pretty thing from almost nothing.
I saw a quote today...
"Art washes from the soul, the dust of everyday life"
Will you add a little art to your day today?
