Wreck the Journal ... pressed flowers

Well, it was actually all about pressing leaves and other things ... but with so many wonderful flowers around me I decided it had to be flowers only :-)

I collected them, arranged them on the page, closed the journal and put it under some heavy cartons (image1).
The flowers came out quite well. It felt a bit bare between the individual flower heads so I did some light colouring between them and decorated around the page with colouring pencils.
Now,  the flowers would move around, wouldn't they? Clingfilm was the saviour (image2).
I even did a double dose. (image3) And to fix it all nicely I used washi tape for the edges of the page (image4)

Thanks for visiting,  Petra.
