Jam Jar Lantern

After the disaster jam jar art previously posted I re-visited the idea.
This is how it turned out.
 
 
 
This technique is so easy, even I can do it.
 
After making sure the jars were clean and free from dust/grease, I blotted on alcohol ink straight from the bottle.  A few different colours were used to create a mottled effect, very effective with a light shining through.
 
A few long lengths of wire were twisted together bent around a pointy tool to create waves and curls, this was then bent and manipulated to create a handle a little decoration around the bottom edge.
 
This is were the red/purple jar had a slight detour,  a mottled stamp was used with flitter glue and   silver/gold flakes to add a worn effect.
 
Shop bought flowers were added to both jars to make them into spring home decorations.
 
Here are just a couple more close ups of the flake effect.

 
Hope you like them.
