My first tissue paper roses

Before I start researching new eco friendly materials I have decided to do my experimenting with things I already have. So these first tissue paper roses are made from ordinary florists white tissue paper and glued with PVA adhesive.
I have used natural plant dyes to colour the petals and leaves. But the leaves are also painted with an extra watercolour wash to make them a darker green.
