Using pressed flowers!

johnny jump up and forget me not
forget me not
I love using pressed flowers from my garden.
Pansies, lobelia, forget me nots, rose petals, false oregano, yarrow, lavender all press well in a phone book. Then lay some big books on top and leave to dry.
I glue them with diamond glaze or glossy accents glue.
