Faux Handmade Paper

I sure many of you have come across this technique before. This was a page in my zine for a swap I took part in several years ago using Rose of Sharon pedals. I dug this out because I've been gathering dried pomegranate pedals and will be trying it soon. If you click on the photo you'll get an image that's easier to read.

I like to keep dried flowers in jars. This is a photo of 2 jars one with Naked Ladies dried pedals and one with Pomegranate pedals. This photo is from February 2007.

Here's the same jar today. The pomegranate pedals have kept their color. If it's hot and dry where you are go out in the cool part of the day to look under flowers and plants.
Have fun and experiment.
