instructions

1. Basecoat your canvas with Minted Aqua and let dry.
2. Use a dry, small flat brush to brush the edges of your canvas with Wicker White. To achieve this distressed look, off load most of the paint from your brush so that there’s barely any paint on the brush. Let dry.
3, Use your pencil to sketch loose circles and leaf shapes towards the center of your canvas.
4. Paint the bigger loose circles with Magenta and the smaller loose circles with Tangerine. Paint your leaves with Aqua. Let dry.
5. Paint loose squigly lines that resemble flower petals inside of your circles. Use Baby Pink and Wicker White for the Magenta circles, and Daybreak and Wicker White for the Tangerine circles. Let dry.
6. Add accents to your leaves with Succulent and let dry.
