I made a picture of sunglasses on a beach with the ocean in the background.
written by Thomas7289
In my pot I put my initials so that everyone will know that it is my work. But on the outside, I put waves like the ocean. The shape of my bowl is a round pinch pot bowl, and it is short. I used blue and light blue because they look good together. I incised a squiggly line on the inside and outside. I created a unity by using different shades of blue. I made my bowl because I made it and it is cool to eat out of something you made. I put my initials so that everybody would know I made it. I thin it came out okay, because there are bumps and indents in a lot of places. But I still think it is successful because I wanted to make a bowl and I did. If I could fix something I would smooth out the bumps and indents and do a second coat on the inside.

I made a picture of a pumpkin. I with corn stalks with corn on them in the back ground. Then I shaded the corn stalks to make it look like there are round. what I used to make this was i cut out pieces of colored construction paper and cut out pieces and ranged to make a picture. Then in the back ground and on the corn stalks I used color pencils to add details. The reason I made this picture is because halloween is coming soon and its one of my favorite holidays. I could improve it by I could have glued everything better. Overall I like it and I like the enfaces on the pumpkin in the middle. I also Think I did a good job cutting the paper to make it fit.
