excellent works, guys!
I tried to fold a young cherry blossom but i need to re-thinking again on how have more leaf/flower effect & maybe work on tesselation to input cherry blossom flossom.
A lot of works, so.

I might join this challenge, but I know absolutely nothing about spring in Japan. Could anyone possibly give some topics that would work?

Same here. I'm not too sure about a certain subject i could do. Would it count if i designed an animal that is native to Japan? Like a Crane, Tanuki, Kabutomushi, Koi, Fugu, Snow Monkey, Japanese Macaque, Tokyo Crow... etc. ?

Google "spring in Japan" and you get lots of info on cherry blossom season, and temples to visit for viewing.

there are several festivals to get inspiration from - for instance the boy's festival held in may or the girl's one held in march ...

Very beautiful grass, snowblue. It's very sensitive.

Did it come from a rectangle, 8x8 grid, with one elias stretch?
