Pressed Flower Reflection
Pressed flower art has been around for a very long time. I've read that in Egyptian tombs, they found some pressed delphinium that still had it's blue color! As with everything, pressed flower art has gone through it's cycles. But make no mistake, this is not your grandmother or even your mother's art. Today's pressed flower artist uses whole stemmed flowers (like the ones sold at Petal Annie's Etsy shop), clean, modern designs and pressing processes that produces bold, bright colors. There is something very zen about taking pressed flowers and arranging on a sheet of handmade paper based on how you "feel" when you lay them out. It's a true reflection of your inner self. Be a pressed flower artist today!
