New Item: Chagami Pack, Now with Pressed Flowers

Here is my latest experiment into utilizing my flower press, 5 Oatmeal Sheets with Pressed Flowers

I know people say don't take pictures during sunset, but I like the warm glow it casts on my paper. This is the first real test of pressed flowers on my paper making.

I may have been a bit overenthusiastic with the drying. As you can see in the picture on the right, the paper pulp couldn't "cling" on to some parts of the flower. On the other hand, the "ghosting: dye effect from the flower petals is pretty sweet.
