Candle Jar

Hello everyone...

Today at City Crafter we have a brand new challenge for you and our host this week is the lovely Wendy ...
This will be Wendy's last challenge for us ... sadly she has decided to step down from the DT at the end of the month...

This week the theme is 

The Key To My Heart

And Wendy is asking that we create a card or project that includes a key and a heart
Our Guest designer this week is our winner from week 190... Cataleya ... Her work is awesome ... hop over and take a look

I loved this challenge - Keys and Hearts and I'm there! And as you know I love candle jars ... so this week I made one of my own

Usually the ones you buy are only decorated on one side ... if they are on the dining table only one person benefits so I decorated on both sides ... 

My jar is recycled ... I keep nearly all my jars and the 'labels' are also recycled ... bet you can't guess where they are from?

No? Well I had this really big canvas picture in my home ... it was wasn't a picture of one thing ... more squares and rectangles of different images ... Alas the frame has warped and I couldn't bear to part with it ... so I removed the whole canvas from the wooden frame and I'm using it in different creations ... this is just one

The canvas cuts easily and I used the cut out hearts there too ... I glued them to card first to make them more solid ... The rubon words are from my stash but the little key and the pearl are from a cheap charm bracelet

A lid? Yep, there's a lid too

I sprayed it first in silver, added a cut out circle of canvas and a recycled flower from a hairband

I loved making this and I'm also entering it in this months challenge at 
and at

We're really looking forward to seeing your projects at City Crafter this week ... Valentine's Day is approaching so that's a good reason to get creative with hearts and keys don't you think?

Thanks so much for visiting me ... don't forget to take a look at the rest of the DT projects on the Blog

Have a beautiful day
