A no, a maybe, & a soft yes

When we moved out of the apartment I pressed a few flowers to remember it by.

Turns out I pressed a lot of lavender, which we have at the house, but I still want to make some sort of artwork out of the pressed flowers.

Things didn’t exactly go as planned.
Whatever way I arranged it, things didn’t look right.

I looked through my paper stash but nothing seemed right.

The plan was to modpodge the dried flowers and some pretty paper to a canvas and that would be that.

My original plan was to make a crayon artwork like McStabby’s nugget made for her. But that failed dismally.

I was however able to use the canvas to test how the paper and flowers would stick, so it wasn’t an entirely wasted exercise. Even if I don’t have anything to show for it.

So it wasn’t an entirely failed experiment.
Although I still don’t know what to do with the pressed flowers.

  1. Hm. Somehow the crayons don’t look like they melted properly. I wonder if there’s different wax contents in different brands that matter? My sister used crayola, but I have no idea if that’s available in Aus. Keep trying! I know you’ll come up with something stellar.

Thanks for stopping by!
