Pretty in Pink

Pink flowers are the order of the day in this week's "You frame it Friday" pressed flower art picture. I don't have a lot of pink flowers at the moment, so when my little daisy plants started blooming yesterday I pressed some of the flowers right away.

This pressed flower art collage is mounted on an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of Gilbert Oxford card stock, to give you plenty of framing options. You may choose to frame it in a small 5 x 7" frame with or with out a mat, but better yet it can be framed in an 8 x 10" frame with a standard mat, or even an 11 x 14" frame, which would allow the deckled edges of the handmade paper to show.

The daisies have been sealed with a UV and moisture resistant sealant, but as with all fine art, I would recommend using acid free matting and UV resistant glass or acrylic.

They look lovely and it gives me an idea for mounting some flowers my son has pressed. Thank you for your inspiration
