Pressing Spring Botanicals

Here are a few photos of spring things I've collected while walking. In a week or two, when they are completely pressed and dried, I'll try adding them to my handmade paper. The press was a gift from my husband, purchased on ArnoldGrummer.com, and it's on sale right now. I love it!

Your finds should add interest to your handmade paper. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Paper made with pressed flowers sounds wonderful. I'm looking forward to seeing it too :) very interested in the process as it would provide a terrific background for the butterflies we are collecting.

Fun, I have never tried pressing flowers.

I've purchased paper with pressed flowers in it -- its difficult to find but so beautiful. You've got some lovely plants to work with.

Amazing. I have dried and also pressed flowers, added oils, made potpourri, etc. It is an enjoyable process. Your flower press is very nice.
