Ellen Benson's MOMPIECE mixed media pieces crack me up! Remember all of the axioms we heard as children--like "Don't Go Out Without a Coat," "Eat Your Dinner, There Are Children Starving in China," and "When You Grow Up, I Hope You Have Children Just Like You"? Benson has a whole series of hilarious interpretations in necklace form made from found objects.

I saw a tutorial over at Make the Best of Things for stylizing a plain glass vase. Decided to try it with one of mine. She used hot glue, (I may use that next time) but I used paper clay to make the design.
A couple of process pics, then the finished vase. Didn't taake a picture when I painted it with gesso.
