Antique Style Flower Picture
I love antiques. Sometimes I like to put a pressed flower picture under clear iridescent glass from a stained glass store, (they will cut to size for you) in an antique or rustic frame to give the illusion of age. It's a lovely effect, but difficult to capture in a photo, so you'll have to take my word for it.
A Child's Collection
My Grandson Ray is fascinated by leaves, ferns, bark, moss, lichens... just about any type of botanical other than flowers. He collects and presses them.
One day we decided to make a picture with his favorites. We put this together, then went to a thrift shop for a frame and mat; didn't want to pay for a new frame for kiddie art that he may tire of. Two years later, It still hangs on his bedroom wall.
