I love pressed flower artwork seen in high-end stores. Especially a large grouping in the same frames with a tag describing the plant or flower pictured. I am sure there is an elaborate method used to press flowers and frame, but today I am going to show you my knock-off version. Here is a picture of the end product with identical frames, matting and similar plants and flowers~ all to create a cohesive look with a big impact.
Below is another example~
Admittedly, I did press these flowers for several months between wax paper in a heavy book with a weight, but I would say there are several posts I have seen around the blogosphere that suggest you put the flowers in the microwave to dry and press for a day or two and the same effect can be achieved. I am definitely planning on trying that DIY.
The Supplies pictured below.
Just a note, I purchased four sheets of quality stationary paper from the craft store with a bit of texture in an off-white.
Step 2~I wrapped the paper around the canvas cutting on a diagonal on each edge and glued each side down with Mod Podge.
Step 3~ I dabbed a bit Mod Podge to secure the flower/plant to the canvas.
Step 4~ Secure the canvas and frame.
I tagged in the corner on each where I found them, since I had no idea the name of the flower, or the genus/species (often labeled on the pricier versions).
Four frames together is a perfect spot for a large open wall.
I hope you are all inspired to complete an easy, pretty project for a wall in your home.
