The Jar Project

Here are a couple of pics of my finished piece for Art House Co-op's Jar Project.


My piece is titled "Dreamer" and has a man laying on his back, with a book on his chest, staring up at the clouds. I made the clouds from invisible thread, cotton balls and glitter and attached them to the jar lid with a combo of glue and wax. Three of my favorite dream quotes and the label on top were made using an image transfer technique I learned at the Art & Soul retreat. The quotes were attached to the inside of the jar using an invisible glue. The miniature man is laying on real moss which was attached using a spray adhesive. I painted the lid with light blue and dabbed white clouds on with a cotton ball before attaching the titled label. It turned out just like I pictured in my head! Yay!  Next up for Art House is The Map Project and The 4x4 Self Portrait Project!
