Paper Petals

For our last lesson in Jane LaFazio's class "Mixed Media with Paper and Cloth", we tore paper napkins into strips and adhered them to a piece of fabric with matte medium.
I wasn't sure how I wanted to use these two collages but after seeing so many spring flowers starting to bloom, I got my inspiration.

I cut 5" petals from the collage and sewed them on to solid fabric.  I am in the process of adding beads, sequins and handstitching to my paper flower.  It's amazing what you can create with everyday items.
