Mixed Media - Cut out flowers

Cut out flower artwork
painted plats
black sharpie

Prepare plat (maps) with acrylic paint. Paint on up to three colors. Set aside to dry.

Prepare canvas with background paint. This is a good opportunity to re-use canvas. Set aside to dry.

Trace flowers onto painted plats. Cut out with scissors. Lay the flowers in a pleasing arrangement. 

Apply adhesive on the back of the flowers and press down. 

Optional - Fill in the background with small cut out circles. 

Once dry, trace the cutouts with a black sharpie. 

Hang art and impress all your friends.
