You frame it Friday

Corn flowers are interesting - working with them is like trying to tame a cowlick - they are unruly and refuse to be tamed. These corn flowers are not the typical blue, but are a beautiful and somewhat rare lavender color. Even the buds are lavender tipped.

This un-framed 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. However, it fits perfectly 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 pressed flowers 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.

This was my 150th post! I can't believe it.
