Queen Anne's Lace grows rampant in the field behind our house. I've been meaning to do something fun with these pretty white umbels for a dog's age. The other morning, I finally traipsed out with my bag and trusty pair of scissors, and went all Edward Scissorhands on the place. It took a good half-minute to gather up some stems for pressing.
I have a couple ideas for these pressed beauties, but I'm still waiting for them to dry... I'm pressing them the old fashion way. Books! It will be a little while yet...
In the meantime, if you'd like to join me in my crafty Queen Anne's lace experiment, here are a few excellent flower pressing tutorials to get you started:
