DIY Pressed Flower Art: How to use a microwave to create your own pieces

Pressed flower art is the old-turned-new obsession we are smitten with!

You spend good money, even creative energy and thought, on fresh flowers for a special gift or event. So you can appreciate the sentimental urge to save them.
Dry them, press them, mount them, and frame them. Pressed flower art is new again.

Self-proclaimed flower evangelist, Ashleigh Rose has her pulse on the pressed flower obsession. She shares several different projects you can do with the resurgent art form.

Ashleigh is a painter, sculptor, photographer, mother, best wife ever and last but not least — an evangelist of flowers! She wants to share her knowledge and help others appreciate the divine creations that are flowers. Find Ashleigh at @monalisafair on Instagram.
