Solstice Candles Snowflake by Eolhin Solstice Candles Snowflake by Eolhin
Dancing candle flames, playing with wax, bright ribbons, visiting family, celebrating the return of the light. This is what the season means to me.

A snowflake, cut from paper with scissors. I scanned it, and then cleaned up a few rough edges with Photoshop 4, but it still retains it's essential nature as cut-paper art, so I am putting it under traditional arts. This one was meant to depict candles and wax. A Winter Solstice sort of theme. Or any other religion you care to apply it to.

I give my permission to :icondapagan: to display my work in the club's gallery.

Thank you. :) I irony amused me, of making flames from something so very flammable. I think this may be my favorite of my snowflakes, though I am rather fond of some of the pentagonal ones as well, and the water one. I really need to scan more of them in, but other projects keep cutting in line. :)

Aw man! Whenever I make snowflakes they always end up looking terrible or falling apart or something. This one's amazing!

Reminds me a lot of a snow flake, what would give it some sort of ironic touch with the motive of a burning candle in a snowflake structure... despite that; a beatuiful geometrical structure.

Good work!

Thank you, and it _is_ a snowflake. *L* I cut it from paper, and just cleaned it up after scanning it in.
