I love leaf pressing. This may come as no surprise if you happened to catch one of my previous projects inspired by an Orangeola Japanese Maple.
posted a beautiful picture of it in the Spring. It went from this:
I picked several leaves (there were way too many to choose from) and went ahead and prepped them for pressing. I started by washing the leaves and then drying them on a paper towel.
Pressing is easy after that. I like to do it old school. I slipped the leaves between the pages of one of my large coffee table books and then added on a lot of weight. Another valuable lesson brought to you from my elementary school education.
Now go and find some lovely leaves to press and...
Have a Happy Day!
