Last week, I enjoyed a creative burst. I made up so many arrangements that I had to promise to carry over some to later. Now, is that later time. I have five more experiments that were completely fun to make.
A couple of Augusts ago, this big, light blue Haeger two-handled urn became part of my collection. Because I prefer to work with medium or small arrangements, the huge vase didn’t get used. It just sat on a shelf. Finally, I gathered a couple of handfuls of large blooms. This late summer arrangement is a celebration of bright colors. I have it sitting on my desk.
In contrast, I have this very small, pink planter with the yellow applique’ blossom that I’ve featured on two previous Floral Fridays. This time, I built a more vertical treatment out of late summer colors. Who knows, there might be another arrangement or two for this vase before I trade it off.
A small Ikebana inspired arrangement is what I envisioned for the little hand painted Japanese vase. Even though I didn’t intend for it to be an Ikebana arrangement, it still might qualify as one in the Free Form category.
For several years, I’ve used a bamboo themed, 1940s planter as a holder for sheets of memo paper and pencils. I decided to put the paper somewhere else. The result was an empty container that needed flowers. A tropical theme seems intuitive. So, that’s what I did.
I feel another creative burst just below the surface of my imagination. I wonder what will come of it.
