Faded Beauty- Using Dried Materials

Materials: Dried celosia (cockscomb), branch
The winter snow storm swiped Northeast of U.S again this pass Tuesday.  Ikebana International #71 has cancel a workshop using materials from our wind-swept winter landscape without water Today, January 23.   Using dried materials is not quite like fresh materials, because their texture and lightness were different which cannot be expressed the same as fresh material.  I  dried cockscombs from last September and color doesn't faded to much at all.  With one bare branch I created an arrangement of dried and faded material.
