Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Let paint dry between applications. Project time does not include this drying time.
  • 2
    Paint the canvas with flat brush and two coats of Tangerine paint.
  • 3
    Use the flat brush to paint 15 craft sticks with Cayman Blue paint and 2 sticks with Citrus Green.
  • 4
    Cut one of the Citrus Green craft sticks in half. Position the Citrus Green sticks to look like a flower stem at the base of the canvas. (Use photo as a guide.) Glue in place.
  • 5
    Working with each Cayman Blue craft stick, cut 1/3 of the stick off. You should have one long section of craft stick and one shorter section. Just above the stem, position 15 of the longer craft sticks in a circle pattern. Glue to secure. Overlap the shorter craft sticks over the longer craft sticks. Glue in place.
  • 6
    Glue the gathered wide Cerise ribbon around the inside of the flower. Make sure the ends of the craft sticks are covered before you trim off excess ribbon. Glue a jumbo White button (or several smaller White buttons) in the center.
  • 7
    Dip the stencil brush into the Titanium White paint. Tap off any excess paint and press onto the canvas creating polka dots.
  • 8
    Glue the narrower Fuschia ribbon around the outer edge of the canvas.
