Garden Art

What have I been doing lately? I've been busy with the kids and things that I need to settle before we go on vacation. Today is the last day for the kids then the school will be closed for Easter Holidays.
Here's a little update on my garden room project..happy to say that it's almost complete. I just need to rearrange things and bring in some of my plants. Will finish it up right after I come back from the holiday.
After 2 weeks of waiting, my first batch of pressed flowers were completely dry. I spent the whole afternoon yesterday having fun creating pressed flowers pictures. I had a wonderful time creating something beautiful from the garden knowing that it would be enjoyed even after the blooming season has ended. I got so caught up, didn't realise the time passed so quickly.
It's really surprised me that there are so many things we can create out of these beautiful flowers. Here are some photos that I would like to share..

After 2 weeks, the flowers are completely dry.

Far right is my fav. Flowers in a basket made of crepe papers. These pressed flowers pictures will be framed and hung in my garden room.

Happy holidays everyone...
