Summer Flowers & New Heart-notes

This very rainy spring and beginning of summer has brought a garden full of flowers. I'm enjoying the picking and the pressing.

I made a new heart-note template that I like better than the old one. Since I embed my flowers in recycled pulp instead of gluing them to the surface of the paper, I sometimes lose the visual effect of the stems. I now hand-paint the stems to restore the visual balance of the designs.
