Blue Cornflowers on Handmade Paper

I love the handmade paper these cornflowers are on - it's very textured because it was never pressed after I pulled the sheet - it almost looks like stucco.  I love how the wild texture contrasts with the simplicity of the flowers, but there aren't many flowers substantial enough to mount on such rough paper.  Thankfully this trio of blue cornflowers do the trick perfectly.

Oh, this is gorgeous. The paper is lovely and the blues of the flower are so deep. Love this!

Thanks so much Chris! I still have some pink and purple pressed cornflowers left, but need to make more of this textured paper.
