Hats off to the artists who make hammering flowers on paper look so easy!
The hammering part is easy enough, but knowing the type of paper and flowers took experimentation.
I gathered dandelions, crocus, nettle, and random leaves and visited a florist who gave me some light pink, near expired flowers, too.
I used mixed media, watercolor, and printmaking paper, with the last being the best transfer using the crocus.
After it dried, I used a Micron PN to run some loose lines around the suggestion of the flower.
This was fun, and I will do it again. That said, if any of you who have experience with this and care to share any tips or tricks, they would be most welcome!
Until tomorrow, xoxo
