I cut up an old bead catalog and turned it into these flowers.  They are all resin coated, plan to turn them into some jewelry or hair accessories, not sure which yet, I think they are real neat anyway Smiley  Hard to get photos at night, I'll try to get some during the day later

by request here is a tutorial  Catalog Flower Tutorial
I would love to see what you make from it if you decide to try them out Smiley

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
