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.

One tragic night was all it took to rob Miriam Jones of her husband. Three years later, still struggling to cope, she is now met with the possibility of losing the only thing left in this world that she holds dear, her daughter. When she is served one morning with her mother's ultimatum, Miriam suddenly finds seven items on a piece of yellow legal pad paper threatening the ledge she is teetering on. In order to finish the list, Miriam must break her silence on that fateful night, or she will lose custody of Penelope to her mother. But an unexpected visit from her sister, Charlotte, affords her at least one hopeful ally in the fight. Reluctantly, Miriam leaves the shell-shocked safe space of her bed behind to join the living. But when her progress is tested, will Miriam crumble and ultimately forfeit custody of Penelope? At times haunting, encouraging, and humorous, Pressing Flowers tackles not only the painful process of grieving but the courage to keep on living. *broken glass image by edailhan.deviantart.com

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.
