The Pressed Flowers that looked like Tattoos...

Finally, the time had come for Emilee and I to carry out our exciting shoot: pressed flowers! I had been planning this one for a while, looking for the right person to model the flowers and the right dress. Hectic summer schedules delayed the shoot even more, but it was all worth the results we got last Friday. I did not come up with this idea on my own, I saw a blog post about the flower tattoo look from a makeup artist, Verity Cumming, who performed this look for a magazine cover. However, I obviously gave it my own touch and approached the photo shoot completely different. I gathered my flowers from a local park, picking up only ones that had fallen. I dried and pressed them myself, then the next day applied them to Emilee. It was such a unique and lovely experience. I definitely want to do more of this.
