Ikebana principles in this month's arrangement:
This month we focus on creating lines. Line is one of the three main elements in an ikebana arrangement. In this month’s arrangement we combine straight and curved lines. Lines are a great way to add movement, rhythm and energy to an arrangement. Whenever you arrange, look closely at your materials to discover any interesting lines, and decide which lines to highlight.
Avoid touching the gladiola petals as you arrange to help them last longer!
Try to make the lily grass tips point up, as this gives the arrangement positive energy
