Creating Tussie Mussies
Thank you BLUETHUMB Art Gallery for selecting my Cyanotype as part of the small curation titled Unbe-leaf-able Art curated by Megan George, and published last week.
I have been fascinated with the Victorian Tussie Mussies for a few decades 🙂 The fragrances created by combining flowers and herbs into a posy are just beautiful. Sometimes I even add rosemary or mint to a collection of garden flowers for the kitchen table or bench for their scent. Also, parsley is a lovely touch for greenery in a kitchen vase. Several years ago I filmed myself, with camera on trusty tripod, creating a Tussie Mussie for the HD DVD The Vegetable Patch (Carers Resources).
In February 2018 I was an exhibiting member with the Arts Connect Inc Untethered Exhibition at The Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy, Queensland. It was a natural, instant thought for me to create an ‘untethered’ Tussie Mussie. This video provides step-by-step images and instructions for making a Tussie Mussie cyanotype. Or watch on YouTube.

Have a lovely day, Judi
