Mindful : August 2017
Before you start a mindful flower arrangement, there are a few things to consider: START WITH SPACE Where do you want your creation to live? Once you've chosen a space, examine it from all angles to get a sense of shape, lighting, color, and general atmosphere. Line, Color, and Space THE BASICS OF ARRANGING GATHER YOUR MATERIALS Ask yourself what flowers and container will harmonize with the space you've chosen. What colors and shapes? For example, do you want something tall and skinny, or full and round? FIND THE LINE To start, choose a flower with a strong line, ideally the tallest flower you plan to use, and place it. Then work down from highest point to the lowest. NOTICE AND FEEL Before you place each flower, hold it in your hands; notice the cur ve of its stem. Twirl it around to see how it looks from different angles. Notice the variation in color, the direction the flower is pointing. Consider how it harmonizes with the space and arrange- ment. Then, slowly and with intention, place the flower. August 2017 mindful 57
