Embellished Peat Pots

I still have a bunch of peat pots left over from the summer.  Since I'm still avoiding the chaos of the stores and malls (and still working with what I already have in the house), I decided to make a couple of new embellished ones.
I gave each a coat of white acrylic paint.  I tried my hand at doing a mixed media one with the little girl.  The image is from The Graphics Fairy and with Newtown on my mind, I wanted to use something with a little girl or boy.
I printed out the image on cardstock and stuck it on with Glue Dots.  I added some pink glitter to her wand and hat.  Then I added some distressed French poetry book paper, the twine, number 15 and a Paris clothes pin.  For now, the pot is filled with some shredded sheet music.
For the second one, I wanted to keep it simple.  I added some French script on cardstock to the bottom.  I had a leftover star from the peace sign I did a few weeks ago, so I added that to the top.  This one is filled with faux Dollar Store moss.
I have a few ideas for some Valentine's Day ones but I promise, I am not starting Valentine's Day projects...yet!
