2 min read

As you already know I all the time love experimenting with new methods of constructing artwork. Pressed leaves are making a comeback within the artwork world, they’re paying homage to many years and centuries previous when folks would press flowers into books to protect them after which flip them into keepsakes.

Pressed flowers and leaves have a basic attraction, so I assumed I’d strive my hand and making just a few with inexperienced leaves on a black background. I’ve seen pressed flower pieces on Etsy with a white background or inside a transparent body. Black backgrounds spotlight inexperienced botanicals so superbly so I selected black artwork paper for this venture.

To create your individual, the availability record is brief and the steps are easy! You’ll want 9×12” black mixed media art paper (additionally accessible here); a set of pressed green leaves; acid free memory glue; tweezers; body of alternative.


Be certain that to make use of acid free glue and paper so the pressed leaf artwork will final for years to come back. I discovered my glue at Michael’s on clearance however you can even discover comparable glues in scrapbook sections of craft shops or on-line.


It is a gradual and meditative type of artwork venture, arranging the leaves after which slowly gluing them one after the other to the paper.





I cleaned them up in Photoshop they usually’re now accessible as digital downloads in my print store which will be printed in quite a lot of sizes from 11×14” to 24×30”.

They’re accessible in this Botanical Collection and likewise within the Etsy store as a pair the place they’re on sale.
