Watercolour and pressed flowers page ©Louisegale.com #NatureTrailSketchbook

This is my favourite sketchbook page so far. We are about to embark on adding more mixed media into our Nature Trail Sketchbooks so I wanted to show you the wonder of pressed flowers and also my re-ignited love of watercolour paint.

I shared the page below on my facebook album a while back as I had loved the creation process of using some bougainvillea to inspire this page, full of beautiful pinks and greens.


Then over the weekend I have been opening up my beautiful stash of pressed flowers to use in my sketchbook. I thought these would make a beautiful addition to this page.

These petals are so precious. I delicately popped them into envelopes to keep them safe and took pleasure in creating a new page in my Nature Trail Sketchbook.

 So below is a little video I made showing the creation of the watercolour page. I hope you enjoy.
