Wall letter made from cardboard,mâché, & clay polymer,

Okay; so I told my niece i would make her some letter for her wall. Of course the store didn't have the 1st letter in her name, so i attempted to make it from cardboard, paper mâché and polymer clay (to help get the flimsy parts harder). I traced a stencil in the cardboard and cut it out. The. I did the mâché, let that dry (but not completely) and then put clay in the areas that needed a little filling in. Finally I baked it in the oven, because I was tired of sitting there with the drying tool. It didn't come out that great, but once I put my embellishments, it should work!

Elegant Flower Pots designed with Sharpie

I came across some stencils I had laying around and in the same drawer was two black sharpies. I had so many of these pots (which I love), but they were too plain.
These are the end results:
Chandelier & fleur-de-lis
 Sailboat for my son (his name came out messy, just exuse that part)

... and another design I had a stencil of.

Frosted Vase can create an Etched appearance

These made wonderful gifts for my son's  teachers for teacher's appreciation week. They loved them!!
Instead of placing the traditional flowers in them, I rolled up a poem I printed out and decorated being it was a pouring down with rain that morning.

Sorry I didn't take a picture of the end result!! I have a couple more to make, so I will try to post a picture with everything included soon!!

Here are the Poems I rolled up and put into the vases for my son's teachers. The pictures are a little dark so it may be a little hard to see them; sorry about that.
