  1. Hi everyone!! Wow! I am so overwhelmed with all your kind words! Too many to reply to so I’ll try and answer some questions in one go!

    These are all mostly flowers from my own garden, I started to experiment with pressing over the lockdown.

    I use a basic press with cardboard and paper for certain flowers, and I use cat litter, of all things, for others. Its so absorbant and cheaper than silica gel.
    I stick them on with a tiny bit of modge podge, spray with a few layers of hairspray to seal and put it in a glass frame.

    As far as colour last, I cant say. But they have been thoroughly dried, and as long as they are kept out of sunlight and away from any moisture, they should last some years.

    I wasn’t really expecting this to be a business venture, but its too good an opportunity to pass on. So I will consider setting up an etsy shop etc. So many of you from America, I have no idea what shipping would cost at the minute, but I can look into it.
    Thanks for reading

  2. Do your flowers keep the color? I don’t believe your husband ever answered that question on his post. If they do, HOW?

  3. I love your artwork! I’ve just recently started doing fun things with dried flowers. Do you use mod podge to make the flowers stick?

  4. This is very cool and pretty!

    I read that light will make the colours fade.

    Can you tell me how to press and preserve the best way?

    Think i should by a special press-tool.
    Noob here

  5. Would you ever make a video tutorial? I’d pay. This would be such a good activity for my little cousins over quarantine!
