Art of Pressed Flowers and Leaves

Contemporary Techniques and Designs
Jennie Ashmore

Description

The art of pressing flowers is enjoying a renaissance, and Jennie Ashmore teaches new fans how to make the most of this rediscovered craft.

She covers everything from the choice of flowers (including roses, poppies and seaweed), to the various methods of pressing them, to designing with the finished pressed flowers and leaves. See how to achieve symmetry, use colour and combine the flowers with watercolour and gouache, painted backgrounds and gold and silver paper.

There’s a range of insider tips on using the ribs of leaves to create pattern and movement, pressing both sides of a leaf and capturing the seasons in a single, beautiful work. Templates will help you get started, and a plant directory shows you what various plants look like when pressed.
