Art is all around us, especially at this time of year as nature is in full bloom! Turn greens from the garden into art!
Botanicals are a simple way to add beautiful art to a space. And best of all they are free and plentiful! Whether you go out into your backyard for a few clippings or decide to use greenery or flowers from a special event and turn them into keepsakes you’ll be thrilled with your new art. You might even decide to create a stunning gallery wall using plants found on your travels for a unique walk down memory lane!
Pressing flowers is simple and fun. There are many methods to create pressed plants but this is one of the easiest. Just grab a book, open it up and insert 2 sheets of paper. Place your greens within the sheets of paper. Close the book and put a weight on top of the book for a few weeks, changing the paper every few days as the moisture is absorbed. Then frame them up for your wall or create colourful suncatchers!
You might also decide to keep your greens or blooms in their original form by hanging upside down to dry and placing within a shadowbox. Select florists will also treat and preserve bouquets. While your custom framer will create the perfect design for your space.
