Here is another dream world sealed in glass. After posting my project and writing the description on my blog on Tuesday, I did a little research online for “assemblage”. I  happily discovered an artist by the name of Lynne Parks, who creates amazing assemblages in old printers trays. She fills each of the small compartments with vintage treasures — tiny bits of discarded ephemera. I loved this quote by her. “When you treat scraps with reverance it redefines what has value.” So true.

Last Saturday, a free summer afternoon and my raw, creative energy inspired me to revisit these dream jar assemblages. Small collages I created and printed on card stock are inserted into the center of the jar. Moss, beads, rhinestones, charms, flowers and sequin birds embellish the cards; it’s a very spontaneous, random process. Lids are colored with paint, wrapped in vintage trims and rickrack or layered with an assortment of fabric flowers and wine corks. What began as a plain store-bought jar is now transformed into a imaginative little glass composition filled with paper, beads and glitter. Now my shelves are filled with eye candy and I cannot wait to create more! Enjoy!
