Seascape Candle

This is another super easy project. I went to the local Hispanic Market and bought some Devotional Glass Candles. I printed a Coral image that I found @ The Graphics Fairy on to marbleized paper (didn't photograph as well as I hoped, it has a mottled quality) and Mod Podged it on the glass cylinder. I went thru my seashell odds & ends and using E600 collaged them on.
The seascape is a vintage art piece that my Gran made in the 1950's. I like the way these two pieces work together.


  1. Beautiful work, John! I love that Gran's seascape seemed to be your inspiration. The two pieces are beautiful together!

  2. Really nice work, and I love the seascape behind as well! Found you through Graphic's Fairy's Blog...stop by my blog and say 'hi' sometime! I do lots of upcycle stuff, and am sharing some vintage book images in the next few weeks you can print off as well. :D
