I am so pleased to be featured on the Melange Team Blog in an interview by Bren from Peace of Mind Studio. Thanks, Bren, for making this so easy. Great questions!
This little candle lantern was the result of the altered jar challenge on the Melange Team Blog. I first covered a baby food jar in yellow vellum. Using a dragonfly punch, I created the shaped cutout in handmade iris leaf paper and, using gloss medium, glued this sheet over the vellum. The jar is embellished with wire, a dragonfly pendant and a large amber bead. These would make a lovely addition to an outdoor party. More wire could be added for hanging.
