I've always loved ikebana. I love to make them out of real flowers. We have a big garden with roses, decorative grass and stuff and I play with them all year long. I found on Flickr the most beautiful ikebana, by Zen-Images and got inspired to make quilled one. I specially liked this one and I invite you to take a look at their fabulous work.
And here is my framed work with cherry blossoms and my husband's and mine names in Chinese. This was a Valentine's present for my husband. I love those letters!
I promised to my mother and to my brother that I'd make them a similar one but in the meantime I made this bookmark for my brother. One step at the time:)
