The day I realised it wasn't going away...

This is my secret for today. I think this is probably one of my favourite secrets so far - because it took a few weeks of planning for it to all come together. I made this secret by taking some flowers from my garden and pressing them between two sheets of baking parchment and some very heavy books - I left them for about two weeks to dry out. I used tea to stain the background and then glued down the flowers (coating the whole secret with pva glue to seal it). I then used a fineliner and wrote my secret over the design by hand. Although it took a while to bring together all the different elements of this secret I think the simplicity of the end design is what makes it really beautiful. Anyway, I hope you like it as much as I do. Enough from me, enjoy!


  1. Thank you Peter, I will show you IRL sometime x

  2. Amazing. I love these little things, they really cheer me up - I'm going to have to print some out to go on my happy wall when I get back to uni! There's about two pictures of me with curly hair from the last five years - I don't tend to let it escape because it's MENTAL!
