Botanical Drawings is a simple, elegant and charming Annie Sloan with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Decoupage Paper showing thistles, pears, strawberries, lemons, and more. The images have been selected from Botanical Drawings by Crispijn de Passe the Younger (c.1589/93-c.1670). From “Hortus floridus”. Arnheim: 1614.
Crispijn de Passe the Younger was born into a dynasty of printmakers, and learnt his trade as an engraver, draughtsman and printmaker of the Dutch Golden age from his father Crispijn the elder. This is some of the earliest work included in the Annie Sloan with Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) collaboration. The designs have been printed on an understated background of Old White (available as both Chalk Paint® and Annie Sloan Wall Paint), with hints of Chalk Paint® in Emile and Amsterdam Green in the line work.
