I’ve got a pressing need to deal with flower power

pressed flowersPressed flower Craft – consists of drying flower petals and leaves in a flower press to flatten and exclude light and moisture. These flower-power people use special paper, such as handmade paper, Ingres paper or Japanese paper. The craft gained popularity in the Victorian era and experienced a revival in the last 30 years or so. The Japanese used pressed plants to create Moshibana Art. However, I’m not sure whether it really is art?

For further oddments, have a look at my Questionable Art- “The Bad-Odd Stuff” page.
