splattered petals


I don’t know what kind of roses these are, but I do like the almost painterly effect of the petals. It’s as if someone’s splattered them with pink paint prior to selling. They’re doing a very good job of sprucing up my bedside table at the moment. I’ve got grand plans to press the petals later so that they can live on forever. I haven’t pressed flowers since I was about ten, and while I recall it not being very difficult, if you have any tips or tricks then do share!

    I've never seen roses like these either, they look gorgeous! Sadly I don't think I've ever pressed a flower in my life, clearly missing out x

    I've never seen roses like that before, they do look painted! I've never pressed flowers, ever, so I haven't got any tips to share unfortunately.
