Botanical Door Border

Created By: Dana Gallagher


Dusty miller, known for its velvety foliage, is small enough to be pressed in a telephone book. When dried, the leaf fronts turn silvery white, while the backs go gray. Both are on view in figure-eight garlands, which flank a doorway in the style of architectural moldings. 

The leaves are affixed to plum-colored rice paper and laid under glass in inexpensive clip frames.
