365 Days of Ikebana-Day 26

Another try at manipulating leaves, this time with monstera leaves and a differeent technique for the equisetum. The monstera leaves I cut into “squares” to try to give them a different look and feel, the equisetum was curled at one end to given them an interesting look (almost like fern curls). Manipulating leaves is getting a bit easier to do, perhaps I’m thinking about the process more and becoming a bit more creative with each new idea. That’s what this 365 project is all about anyway.

    Looks great, fiddle heads on ferns are very stylish but they are also completely seasonal. It’s nice to see you can make a facsimile with ready materials from the garden. All that after a busy day, congratulations.

    Fantastic! Did you use a flower frog to anchor the leaves? Keep up your creativity 🙂

    Yes Rebecca, I used a flower frog or kenzsn to anchor the leaves.

    My top pick for vases would be http://www.kaki4u.com. they can be a bit pricey, so eBay is another excellent resource and also etsy.com. Etsy items have a set price and you can find some great vintage and handmade items for sale!

    They last a long time, and if you paint them you can get a longer life out of them.
