2. "Everlasting Plaque" by Marcy of marcympc
This is a 4" x 5" plaque than can be hung on a wall with the included hook or used as a refrigerator or file magnet. Several polymer clay shapes were prepared, attached to one another and enhanced with various charms to create this piece

3. Very Cool Stuff by Betsy of StrebeDesigns
I decided to give my work area more of a artsy creative feel, so I have been making containers to hold my tools, toothpicks, ink applicators, etc.

This one says "Very Cool Stuff" on the front and "Creative Zone" on the back. The sailboat comes from one one of my own stamps. Sailboats are significant in my life; I sailed with my favorite uncle as a kid so the sailboat reminds me of him. That makes this more special to look at while I am creating.  For a look inside the process, more views and some of my other containers see http://strebedesigns.blogspot.com/2015/08/very-cool-stuff-tool-container.html

4. Granite "O" by Susan of 11BOLDstreet
Decorative faux granite "O" was formed of chopped polymer, in black, grays, silver leaf and translucents. I covered a scrap polymer base, just over 5" high. It's been sanded through many grades, but alas, I'm away from my buffing wheel and don't know how it's ultimately going to turn out in time for Challenge submission.... I have high hopes for a high shine!!

5. Life is Art Mosaic by Arlene of HarrisonHollow
The theme for this month's PCAGOE Challenge is ABC's. The message in the middle of the star says "Life is the Art of Drawing without an Eraser".
