Angel in a jar

I love to make little things for my daughter, and I love to recycle things, so I put the two of them together and I made this cute angel in a jar.

The idea is very simple: you start with an empty marmalade jar, then pick an image you like to put inside and embellish your jar as much as you want!
I used a Michelle Perkett image that I colored with colored pencils and added some details to it: pearl paint on the stars and moons on her dress, glitter on her wings and cuffs, and a few white feathers on her wings too. I glued the angel inside the jar and fill it with some iridescent plastic shredded paper as clouds.
Then I painted the lid with gesso, and after it was dry I glued with mod podge a sentiment made with single words cut out from a magazine. I finished the lid glittering all its border.
And to finish this craft I painted tiny dots of glow in the dark paint on the otside of the jar, my idea was for them to look like tiny stars during the night, they can not be seen very well on the picture...
