Pressing


Today I was out collecting plants to press and dry. Lynn at hercreativespirit.blogspot.com has a tutorial on how to mount dried flowers to make very pretty bookmarks. All you need for this project is dried flowers, wax paper, tissue paper and glue. Eva and I added metallic paint to our creations. I had some pressed feverfew and a few other plants already pressed.

Eva was thrilled to take this picture of Chow Wow and Fuzz-a-roo. Usually Chow is chasing our cats out of the yard. The picture proves it's all an act!
