  This is lovely! I always wanted to do something similar with flower petals, the older darker petals toward the bottom, progressively brightening at the top. I never had the nerve to try (flower petals are much harder to get large amounts of then leaves...) But now I think I might try some organic pieces as well. Thank you! :D

  Flower petals are also much more fugitive than leaves - you'd have to select varieties that didn't wilt as quickly, and even then you would probably need to create and photograph in the same day.

You could do artificial flower petals - either ribbon-flower style or out of fabric. There are special irons (and books of instructions) for shaping fabric into realistic petal and leaf shapes.
