Many gardeners some sort of record of what gets planted when. Have you ever thought of creating a more unique item as a keepsake? Have you thought to keep a botanical scrap book or journal of your garden? Or perhaps designing a sampler that illustrated the plants in your garden?
Mo plants have published a file of resources online for those crafters interested in botanical illustrations.
Embroiderers through out the ages have made use of botanical illustrations and gardens. I immediately saw this resource as a design source for textile practitioners. Ideas for using these images in other crafts are well covered, along side a few brief tips and tricks for using graphic files, pressing flowers and using them in craft projects.
The file is in PDF format so it can be stored for your reference.
Thank you so much for posting this link Sharon. The online resources that she’s listed are wonderful, with really incredible illustrations.
