Making art with pressed flowers


Hydrangeas make the best pressed flowers!  I have a few different flowers in my book, but none of them seem to hold their shape nearly as well as these ones. The colour is also fantastic, but I'm not sure if it will stay violet.

I'm trying out a slow-drying acrylic medium to see if it will help seal it against the page, because that's what I've got around the house. If that fails, I think I've got a sealant glue somewhere... 

Normally, I wouldn't worry too much about it in the case of mixed media art, as it is usually protected well. But this is for an art journal cover so it has to be a bit more durable! :P
