    Pressed flowers from my garden

    Following on from my previous blog post about pressed flower lockets, I thought I would try something a little larger. This time I used dried flowers pressed from my garden.

    A few weeks ago I cut some large pieces of viola plant, with stem and leaves, and pressed them. After a false start where the whole batch went wrinkly as described in my dried flower diaries in March, the flowers came out quite well.

    Pressed flower frames

    What could be simpler than placing these flowers inside a glass frame?

    These pressed flower frames are see-through, so perfect for a window, or simply use decorative paper inside for a more traditional one-sided picture frame.

    It would be lovely to make a pressed flower collage in a frame like this, so I will have to consider a design.
