This is some flower pounding on watercolor paper! Lyn Avedikian told me about it.....she had remembered an article in Somerset from 2002! :0) Lyn made a gorgeous postcard from her pounding and sent me one! Wheee! Anyways, basically, you take the flowers and place them on a wooden board with paper towel over them, on a stack of magazines and your pound the flowers with a hammer! Some petals are extremely juicy and some are not! I found it fun and interesting!
The watecolor paper can take the liquid and it the prints come out neat! You can overstamp and collage on this paper.....used as a background! Just great! I got lots of the flowers from my Dad's and my neice Elizabeth helped me pick them! Thanks for that Dad and Elizabeth and also for the inspiration LYN! <3
