How I use blooms of the Silk tree on my Pressed Plant Arts.

Updated: Jun 16

I found out what wonderful plant material is blooms of the Silk tree for my Pressed Plant Arts. I’ll show you some examples of how I used this botanical material for my creation on the Pressed Plant Arts.

First of all, I’ll show you it in my video for those who are not familiar with the Silk tree.


Now let's look at my Pressed Plant Collages where I used dried and painted with Pan Pastel blooms of the Silk tree.
