|Slide Art Mounted on Vintage Book Pages|
I have a couple of flower presses and fill them quickly. Of course I sometimes revert to the standard of placing them in between pages of books (which is always a lovely find when I later flip through the book).
If you have read my first book Collage Playground F + W Media, North Light Books (2010) you might remember how I store collage resources (like pressed flowers). A three ring binder, page protectors, a sharpie and labels - easy enough.
Slides are numerous and easy to find. To use them as frames, slide a craft knife between the front and back of the plastic frame, twist a bit and pop open. Place your art in and pop back together. If you are interested in learning more about slide art - my next book Mixed Media Handbook F + W Media, North Light Books (Fall 2014) will also showcase some ideas. In the meantime, gather some flowers and begin pressing!
