This was one of my ATCs for the May ATC Swap, with an "Asian" theme. I used Japanese origami paper and cuttings from a Japanese math text book to create this flower collage. I also used paint markers and metallic leafing pens to outline certain pieces of paper.

The title, "Ikebana", refers to the Japanese art of flower arrangement.

Thanks Lyn, Nelson, Jill and Jimtown! :D This was a fun - but fiddly - piece to create.
