Paper flowers

By far my favourite flower (or bush?), I even wanted bougainvillas in our wedding, but they had to be ordered from Valencia and bla bla bla, so I ended up giving in on that one. Here, they're everywhere...


The original bougainvilla, the fairest of them all, the princess of the ball, outside my grandparents old house in Alicante, Spain (the closest relationship I've ever had with anything from the plant kingdom ):

Mormor was constantly on her knees digging and watering and sowing and cutting in that garden. My next project: a bougainvilla for the entrance, just have to paint the stairs first and that's a job I'm not looking forward to. Once you see the before and after pics you'll understand why.
