How to make

Step 1 

Gather your Materials to begin crafting, make sure you have some tissue to hand to dab any excess paint off your brush

Step 2

Mix a peach colour using a red acrylic, yellow and white to create a soft pinky peach, this is going to be your main floral colour. (If you’d prefer to not mix colours you can use them straight from the tubes instead or adapt to your own colour preferences)

Step 3

Paint 3 circles in the centre of your pouch, one larger circle and 2 smaller ones all sat together in a group and begin painting inside the circles leaving a smaller circle unpainted in the middle of each.

Step 4 

Taking a darker hue (I added a little more red to my peach mix) you can then add depth to the circles by adding in swooshes around the centre with the paint blending into you initial colour.

Step 5

Using the green acrylic paint your leaf shapes working outwards from the gaps between your floral motifs and fill in with the paint.

Step 6 

You’ll then need to take some of the yellow acrylic and add it into the blank centres you left on your floral shapes.

Step 7 

Using another colour add in small circle shapes around the leaves to create the ideas of berries. You can then add more detail onto your motifs with darker paint lines swooshing around your floral centre and lighter paint creating depth on the leaves. Leave to dry.
