Stitching on real flowers/leaves/seedpods

In for a penny, in for a pound. A while back I watched a video on the use of honesty seed pouches in conjunction with stitch. I have also been amazed at the stitching some people do on real leave. I have had a play around with this, coating leaves with gel medium or pva (elmers glue) and now I am ready to have a more serious play with this. Here is a collection of honesty seed pods and some wonderful coloured hydrangea flowers - I am hoping the colour will also be preserved by the coating. At the present they are deep purple and lime green. I have coated both sides with soft gel medium. PVA I cheaper but I think the gel gives more flexibility when it is dried. Now I need to decide on a project to complete this with.
