Mixed Media Monday - Floral Tributes




I grew pansies and violas in pots this Spring not only because I love their sweet floral faces but also because they press beautifully. I own a Microfleur and love the easy and speed with which this process happens. I'm presently eyeing the lavender which is growing in abundance in my garden. Of course, pressing lavender has the added bonus of infusing scent when microwaved. These round robin journal pages are my entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge this week.
