This picture is made of: hydrangea, bark, cinnamon, aucuba, black hollyhock, onion, gray poplar, money plant, pansy, seaweed, cotton and turmeric.
My thoughts: Fly-fishermen talk about “matching the hatch,” which refers to matching the appearance of insects that trout eat with fishing flies tied from feathers and fur. I do something similar as I seek to match the colors and patterns on the sides of the fish with plant materiel. Fish might be my very favorite thing to make with pressed flowers. I like overlapping the various leaves and petals to make it all blend smoothly.
