This collage has been created using an assortment of pressed leaves, sticks and a couple of acorn caps for it’s eyes. They’ve all been glued onto a black piece of paper which makes the bug really stand out.
Leaves can be easily pressed in old books, or in a flower press like this, made from two pieces of wood joined with screws and wingnuts.
The leaves are sandwiched between layers of paper and cardboard for a few weeks to dry out before use.
