I’ve had loads of fun crafting with friends lately. My three latest pieces are pressed flower art, a painted globe and a wooden sign.
I learned about flower pressing from a class taught by Ayla of Gypsy Skulls. It was more challenging than it looks! We practiced our layouts, then used spray adhesive to place the flowers.
I just need to frame it. And start sourcing the loads of flowers I need to start pressing my own! You can also buy inexpensive pressed flowers from pressedflowersmart.com.
The night before the flower class, I had gotten together with a few coworkers to play around with a Cricut Air machine. It’s incredibly easy to use – I’ve put it on my Christmas list.
Added vinyl letters cut on the Cricut.
Painted the whole thing black.
Keith dismantled a pallet to create the sign, I whitewashed it and he attached a ball and stick. My friend used her Cricut to make the letters.
