Further pictures with dried flowers & petals
I recently revisited and improved my image of Fair Rosamund in dried flower petals. I was very pleased with the result and thought I’d try two more quick dried flowers projects in the same vein – the first one took about a half an hour and the second one an hour.
Dried flowers art project 1: Union Jack revisited
When I finished Fair Rosamund, I wished I’d treated the delphinium petals Union Jack I made last year in the same way. So I took some loose dried flower petals and sprinkled them over the image to produce a more 3D effect.
Dried flowers art project 2. Our logo
Part of our daisyshop.co.uk logo is a wingding in green and white.
I printed it out so it covered about 4 pages of A4 paper, then covered it in dried ivory delphinium petals and green hydrangea petals. Then I surrounded the logo with dark blue delphiniums. Of course these flowers are more commonly used as natural wedding confetti.
I’m still thinking about how I can use this image! The petals are really beautiful and as they weren’t glued down, they had to go back in the bag once I’d taken the picture, which seemed a great shame.
