Busy Pressing Flowers
This is tradescantia, actually it's the backside of the flowers, all lined up and ready to go into my Microfleur microwave flower press. In less than 90 seconds they'll be pressed and ready to go. The front side of these flowers (also commonly known as spiderwort), are stunning with their golden yellow stamens which really pop against the bright fuchsia.
Tradescantia have long strapping leaves, similiar to iris, and when I make pressed flower cards with them, I use thick blades of grass to mimic their leaves. I'll try to get some cards made in the next day or two to show you.
