There’s a really wild feel about these designs…

Garden flowers are such a delight to press, the detail and colour preservation is unique. These have a beautiful antique look to them, brought to the surface during the process…

It’s a constant surprise when opening up all the presses after a few weeks of preserving. I was blown away by the detail on the cosmos (bottom left hand corner) they almost look like a sketch with the deep pink outline popping out on the petals. The same has happened on the beautiful garden rose…

That’s the beauty of pressing¬† flowers, it highlights and brings to life all the tiny details that you just don’t see when they’re fresh and alive, they take on a different kind of beauty when pressed and dried, like a skeleton almost.
