    Creating various designs from used materials are wonderful for we can be able to inspire more people doing this stuffs on their own. Aside from that, we can be able to enhance further our skills in making this work of art that could be an great advantage for we can be able to make a business out of it.

    I loved the book page wreath! I wanted mine blue for Christmas so I used an old damaged bible. I dyed the pages outside in a bucket and painted just the edges with shiny silver
