Art by nature, and Micki

Pressed Flower Art. It's simple. Nature provides the medium, I just help preserve it's beauty.

" N Art" is so I can include my other creative adventures from time to time.

Wedding Keepsake

When I received the request to do this wedding keepsake, along with the fresh flowers, I was excited to create a really special piece. I love the materials I had to work with. The brown ribbon, the calla lilies and the roses were rich in color and paired well with the elegant dark brown frame. I included a photo ( blocked for privacy) and the program cover to make a great gift for the wedding couple to enjoy for many happy years to come.

Art For Pakistan

By request, many members of The World Wide Pressed Flower Guild have made pieces that will be on exhibition at the Lahore Art Museum of Pakistan. Our Public Relations Director has been in contact with a small group of pressed flower artists there, helping them in many ways, to grow, learn and promote pressed flower art. This month we were asked to create art to add to their exhibition. The request came recently, so time was limited, in order for the art to travel the distance and arrive on time. The only requirement for these pictures was that the art should be 9x9 inches.

So with limited time I sat for a few hours one night to make two simple pictures. With my fresh stock of fall leaves, I created the picture on the left " The Colors Of  Fall".

Then I wanted to do something fun with flowers. While tempted to do one of my fairies, I didn't have time to search through my stock of flowers, so I grabbed the first few packets I found and composed this whimsical design that I titled "Happy Flowers Dance".
