DIY botanical prints, anyone? You don't even need to be artistic, I promise.
here, I got really excited and rushed out to buy myself some watercolours so I can create my own easy botanical prints at home. I was feeling rather chuffed with my efforts so I've decided to share this tutorial so you too can be an "artist".
First you need to collect leaves and press them until they're flat. For my prints, I used a fern leaf and a couple of mint leaves.
Once you have worked out the desired print and colour, you're ready to print on clean sheet of paper sized to fit in your chosen frames.
Place leaves/stem gently on paper in position, paint side down. Use another clean sheet of paper and press down over the top of the leaves/stem, then rub your fingers over them to transfer the print and create an impression. Leave to dry completely before placing in frames.
