(1) Sharon (Colorado Spring), free style, disassembling and re-arranging
(2) Eileen, free style, disassembling and re-arranging
Dissembling and re-arranging is a good technique to master. When you have only a limited amount of material, in this case, only one kind of material-coffee bean, dissembling the material yields two different materials. In this case, you can make the arrangement more interesting. In Sharon's arrangement, the colorful containers has already made the setting interesting. The coffee beans and their stems are simple enough that they don't need to add any color to the arrangement. Obviously, the containers are part of the arrangement. Eileen's arrangement is also straight forward. Stems form the curve lines, coffee beans are the focal point.
