Amazing real flower cards from Lisa Reid The meditative state I get into when pressing individual petals, relieves stresses and tensions. This is all on quite a large scale, using lint free paper to capture the brightness. They can take up to a week to dry; depending upon how much moisture is in the petal. Its here the clarity of the glue makes a perfect partnership, suspending the petals and allowing the glow of light to pass through. Illuminating colour and texture. The light acts as one aspect of the perception of space, creating the illusion of weightlessness.
