This year I chose violas with their delicate colors.
I placed the flowers between two pieces of watercolor paper and taped them together to prevent them from moving about too much. Put this between two magazines and then took out the hammer and smashed about a bit.
These are the flowers when I opened up the package.
This is the image on the other piece of paper.
Then I gently rolled the squished flowers off the paper with my finger tip.
In the final print the colors seem somewhat different.
A fun activity for those with time on their hands!
