I finally took some pictures of my latest projects. Sorry that they aren't the highest quality photos! Here they are:
First, my attempt at painting. I just used acrylic paint, and then added wood stain to the top to give it dimension. The gold swirls are just craft paint. What do you think?
I had the activity day girls in my church(ages 8-11) make these vases. So this was my example for them which I did beforehand. It is just paper ripped and stuck on the vase with mod podge. They turned out really cute!
I liked my vase so much that I decided to do some more. I decided to make two matching ones. I used the centerpieces from my reception! This time I cut the paper into squares. (I like geometric designs if you haven't figured that out yet!!)
