Paris Peat Pot

For Art Party this month we did an exchange of altered peat pots. Here is my offering, as all of my art now seems to be with a Paris theme! My husband wonders of it will get worse or better after I go to Paris in October? (I think worse, of course!) The peat pot was a very inexpensive and interesting thing to alter - and once I got started I just couldn't stop. I have now tried stamping, embellishing, and painting them, and I even created a hot air balloon out of one. I have yet to photo it, but it will end up on my blog when I do.

Happy Pink Saturday to the wonderful blog visiters from How Sweet the Sound. To follow others visit http://www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com/
