Agapanthus pages

Agapanthus pages
From my botanical journal.
This time I reproduced my agapanthus pressed flowers
as a faux sun print painted with white acrylic ink
on a piece of very cyan handmade Amate paper.

Thank you so much! :)

Allison: I know, I've made lots them before with my kids, but I thought it would be more fun to replicate one with ink :)

So fun. It looks exactly like those sun exposure prints (except your blue is much prettier).

Love your journals. You are such a constant source for inspiration.

Hi Geninne,
I would never have thought to take the individual blooms from the agapanthus. Our long driveway is lined with these beauties and I'll have a whole lot of flower pressing ahead when the summer arrives.

I thought I'd let you know that you have been included in a list I've just submitted for a competition. I wrote a list of 50 people I'd like to sit beside on a long-haul flight and even though I've just started to follow your page I had to let you know that you are on the list.

Ciao for now,
Felicity

So pretty! I think I'll have to scour the garden and start drying some flowers too, to liven up my journal. Thank you for the inspiration!
