Large Arrangement Free Style
One day before class, at home, over 4 ft. tall
After teacher's suggestion and changes
After I finished my wood arrangement a couple of weeks ago, my teacher encouraged me to do a larger arrangement. I think I am ready this time and have some ideas in my mind so I went looking for usable wood in the small forest in my backyard. I cut them, trimmed them, and interlocked them to make them secure and stabilized, then I put the self made container in the middle (shaped round like birds nest). I gathered the Nandinas, Mums, pine and laced maple in the container. At the bottom, as you can see there are also Mums, berries and pine. I think it looks beautiful but not striking enough.
Slanting Style Nageire Variation #1
Crape myrtles (turned a fall color now) with white Mums are good combination.
