I received several packets of faded flowers from a deceased flower artist and wasn't sure what to do with the muted colors as I am used to using bright colors. As I worked with these flowers I became very fond of their neutrality and subtle beauty. I realized that in the growth cycle often I have thought of the disintegration cycle as not that beautiful but in working with these flowers I can see that all of the cycles of growth have their own unique beauty including the death cycle.
Also as I was working on this I dicovered a small bug that was pressed in the process. The bug is glued to the bottom of the swithplate. I wonder is you can see her.

I think that flowers have such beautiful, healing energy and working with them in stressful times is one of my forms of therapy. I call it "Pressed Flower Therapy".....Finally attached is a copy of the bookmark I made in my last post and a couple of others that are laminated. The final touch will be to add a ribbon at the top. I like the soft look of these bookmarks......my "Soft Pink Series".
