A ground-breaking book on the art of pressed flowers and leaf works from leading flower artist, Jennie Ashmore. Our love for flowers and leaves has never been more pronounced and in this book, we teach you how to make the most of the rediscovered pressed flower art, from choice of flowers (including roses, oak leaves and seaweed), the various ways of pressing them, designing with pressed flowers and leaves, achieving symmetry, the use of colour, and combining pressed flowers with watercolour and gouache, painted background, and gold and silver paper. The highly experienced author gives a range of insider tips from using the ribs of leaves to create pattern and movement, pressing both sides of a leaf, and capturing the seasons in one piece of work. She also provides templates to help you get started. A plant directory at the back of the book allows you to see what various plants look like when pressed. A stunningly beautiful book that opens up a traditional art to a very contemporary expression for all crafters and nature lovers.

Table of Contents Introduction How to Skeletonize Leaves Drying Flowers Naturally Traditional Drying with Sand Preparing Your Flowers for Drying Two Ways of Drying Flowers – Face up and Face Down Dry Filler Items Drying with Silica Gel How to Prevent Over – Drying Air Drying Methods and Glycerin Glycerin Assembling Your Flowers Dried Flower Projects Flower Frame Flower and Herb Leaf Ideas Appendix Conclusion How to Make a Rose Potpourri Crystallized Violets Author Bio Publisher Introduction The art of floral preservation has been en vogue for millenniums, all over the world, in some form or the other. You may have heard of dried flowers, dried herbs, dried seeds, bark, roots, and even potpourri. The only reason why I would want to live in the age of Cleopatra is that the ancient Egyptians knew all about a flower preservation method with which flowers kept their original color, shape, and looks for more than 6 months after they had been cut. Cleopatra’s rooms were full of these flowers. Unfortunately, we have lost this method of preserving flowers, with the burning of the library at Alexandria. However, even up to 1638, Signor Ferrari living in Siena – Italy – described how flowers could be preserved and kept everlasting and alive. Nevertheless, the flowers that we dry today do not have their original color not do they have the rich feel of a thing alive. What we have is something mummified because it has been dried in sand and silica gel. When I was a child, I asked my science teacher to give me a little bit of silica gel because I wanted to preserve all the flowers in our garden in all their colors, and that nice gentleman told me that the colors changed and turn brown, when the water content was removed from that particular plant. I believe that was the first disappointment in my young life, because I wanted all of those colors and their shapes to last forever. But, well, that secret has gone with the ancient Egyptians. Nevertheless, today we are drying flowers, through air drying processes, and this book is going to tell you all about how you can create things of beauty from dried flowers, and anything natural, which you can dry and turn into a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

"We pick flowers, knowing they will die. We press flowers, hoping they will survive." Reading a poem is not so different to picking a flower. Like flowers, there are some poems we want to press between the pages of a book. This book contains eighty six of my most popular poems from my first three books: Death and Life (2014), Passage (2015), and Love Is A Song She Sang From A Cage (2016).
