324 paper flowers








yes that's how many paper flowers I used to create this 50x40 cm canvas. All the flowers started as white and off-white. I threw a variety in to a large plastic tub and sprayed using my LSG spritz and stains, I kept spraying and shaking the container to mix the colours...it reminds me of confetti that has gotten wet...the colours run and blend beautifully on the paper flowers. Once I was happy with the look of them I used my heat gun to force dry before sitting down and layering to create a variety of pretty blooms.
