About a year ago, I attended a class with my daughter & some friends, where we made trinket dishes using clay & pressed flowers. The class was taught by Brush And Blossom. I usually teach art & craft classes, so it was nice to be the student for a change.
After the class, I became a little obsessed with gathering & pressing flowers. I would pick flowers from my yard, & there are beautiful wildflowers & weeds growing along my dirt road.
To press them, I placed flowers, ferns, leaves, etc. between 2 sheets of paper, then placed the paper between sheets of parchment paper, & placed them in a book. I have a huge dictionary that works perfectly.
I have so many pressed flowers but have only done a few projects with them. At Christmas, my son & daughter-in-law gave me packs of these fun stickers. I added some of my pressed flowers to them to make pretty bookmarks.
I wanted a better way to display the flowers rather than hidden in a book. So, I came up with an easy art project using the flowers & the stickers.
I started by painting a wooden canvas with the color Caviar, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
I set the canvas aside to dry, & painted a simple wooden frame with Dixie Belle's color, Weeping Willow.
The hardest part of this project was deciding which one of the stickers to use. There are several different ones in each pack, & I have 6 packs.
