Pressed Botanical Portraits

by haikuhouse

That is a heavy Jacksonville city directory from 1961! Found it in the old Seminole Club downtown.

Gorgeous deep purple leaves

Interesting composition

Can’t get these tough little pods to flatten…any suggestions?

Saved the most beautiful for last…I love this one.

Pressing plants & flowers is so easy. If you have children I think they would really enjoy it; a nature lesson with an emphasis on patience…haha. I can hear my sister saying “Ya right!” 

But I say “Why not?”

Peace & many blessings,
