Dried Flowers In Resin

I have been filling bezels with dried flowers this month and then covering them in resin.

My project began when I found this dried flower press in my shed.  This is the first summer in my new home and so I finding odds and ends as I sort and reorganize.

The previous owners started a wonderful perennial garden that I am now maintaining.  I imagine these dried flowers would have come right from our garden.

There were so many to choose from.

I filled so many bezels!

I honestly could not be happier with these pieces.

I even covered a journal.

Dried flowers are easy to work with.  You just have to be sure you seal them several times before pouring resin over them.  I have several posts on this blog already showing you this technique.
