Flower Pounding

This is another thing we tried at the DW Retreat. We collected a range of flora and sandwiched it in fabric, then whacked it with a rubber mallet or a hammer.

Some bits of plants worked better than others. If the flower/leaf is too fleshy you are likely to get just a blob of colour.

I think this would make a good background for stitching.
