One advantages of the medium of pressed-flowers is being able to match textures as well as colors. If I was a painter I'd have to figure out how to illustrate fur with the way I manipulated the paint. But since I'm a pressed-flower artist I can just grab a fuzzy pampas grass head that already looks like cat fur to illustrate cat fur. I like making pictures of cats.
This picture is made of: pampas grass, cotton, poppy seed, banana peel, fall leaves, chrysanthemum and mica to add sparkle to the cat's eyes
