Winter in a Jar

 For my "Winter in a Jar" swap, I decided to make a frosty Fairy that uses her magic snowflake wand to change the seasons, that gives us that wonderful snowy splendor we think of as Winter. It is simply a snowy scene with frosty glistening trees on a bed of iridescent snow and the frost Fairy herself as she waves her wand over the landscape. I used velum as icicles with a hint of stickles icing. Bleached bottle brush tress, heavly frosted with snow, and faux irridescent snow. I used a Yankee candle jar, upturned and used the lid as the base, (you can still open the jar, if needed) I used photoshop to make the Fairy and she is double sided and suspended from fising line from a giant snowflake glued from the top. I decorated the outside with some irridescent snow flakes from Hero arts embellishments, and topped another giant glitter snowflake on top over the one placed on the inside. I do hope my partner will like her jar. We are to mail our swaps out by February 5, but I now know where I'll be sending mine, so I can mail anytime.  BTW, I will post what I get in return. In the mean time, Happy creating!  Debbie
