Indigoblu challenge - Summer florals

Hi folks
my favorite theme flowers, this time I have made origami flowers and spiral flowers from Indigoblu papers and stamped images.
the paper stacks are  amazing, I used  floral fantasy mixed media paper just click here to take you to it.
The papers are beautiful unaltered but what would be the fun in that eh? they were gessoed, painted and distressed a little before making up into flowers, the spiral flowers were made using stamped and painted card stock.
The flowers have wire through the centres  held on with buttons these were secured to the MDF pot using hot glue and draped with natural fibres to hide the wires.
the MDF pot had a coat of gesso and the paints were dry brushed onto the pot I love the distressed look and the paints are just yummy so thick and luscious a dream to work with, I also stamped a pattern randomly to add a little depth to the pot, hope you like it
here is the complete article-

 here are a few close up's too-

the button were painted and stamped too.

lots of crafty hugs
