Another one of those crafts where you’re like, ‘man I wish I could do that’. I tried my hand at pressing flowers when I was younger, and have dreamt of putting together amazing bouquets, but there is no way I could pull this one off.
I love the way Anne Ten Donkelaar integrates pressed flowers with little paper cut-outs. I don’t know who got the idea from who but it massively reminds me of Ben Giles wonderful craftwork for Yen a few months ago. Whoever started this trend is a genius though. Alice in Wonderland would have cherished these gardens.
Next thing you know Tim Burton will be using these artworks as the backdrop for his next movie.
