On my way to our Ikebana class last Tuesday, I was still clueless of what I should make. When I opened my set of flowers, I saw palm leaves and some grasses. Palm leaves are quite huge and if done wrong, it can overpower the flowers. But the good side is, they are also versatile and easy to modify. You can make different designs by trimming, shaping, or weaving the leaves to come up with a new form.
And so I followed what my guts told me, play with the leaves!
