Florals and illustrator

Apropos a recollection from a few years ago, I tried to explain to a few office friends what I meant by filigree floral designs, and everyone had a different idea -- the search term should have been vector swirls. In the interest of demonstration I created a few here: 1) spirals based branches with leafy tips {time consuming}, 2) two point B├ęzier branches with heart like tips, 3) paisley teardrop branches with smooth node tips {quickest to make}, 4) grassy looking curves with corner node tips, 5) a background texture made of modified arrows with path effects, duplicated and rotated, 6) a combo.
