my first Ikebana

Friday, October 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

What a busy week I’ve had.

Mon-Tue in Stockholm, Sweden,

Wed met a friend here in Helsinki,

Thu hair cut,

today we’re having dinner guests…so my post is very short today.

 

Last Saturday I participated in ikebana for beginners course.

It was very interesting but to really know how to make beautiful ones

you need years to learn…but it was a fun and interesting day!

 

 

Here’s my first ever ikebana –

have you tried/studied ikebana?

I bought a pile of 300 g paper from England.

Hi everyone!

We’ve had a beautiful, sunny week! wow!

Every morning I’ve painted something and then enjoyed

sunbathing in our terrace…

 

I’ve put more layers on this canvas

now it looks like this, not complete yet.

I’ve played with coffee. A few coffee based papers are waiting

for action.

 

I don’t like this as a painting but

I love those details of it!
