how to do it yourself


Take a stretched canvas measuring 12” x 24”. Draw a fern leaf pattern on the paper in the size of approximately 9” x 24” This is the size of the inner frame on which the canvas is stretched.


Trace the design from the rear side of the canvas and cut the leaves with a sharp paper cutter. Let the leaves be arranged in the same pattern as you cut them. Paint the border with Acrylic Color Pearl - Metallic Gold. You may apply 2-3 coats of color for an even look.


To color the inner area of the canvas in a light shade of blue, mix Acrylic Color Pearl - Sky Blue and White. Apply it 2-3 times to give an even coat.


Take all the cut leaves and paint them in shades of green, made by mixing Acrylic Color Pearl – Spring Green, Turquoise Blue and White. Leave it to dry. Turn these leaves slightly over the pencil to give them a curled look.


Stick all the leaves with No Stitch Fabric Glue from the rear side of the canvas. Stick the leaves only on its lower edges. Leave it to dry.


Stick green colored, small sized ornamental stones with No Stitch Fabric Glue creating a border on the inner sky blue colored rectangular patch. Leave it to dry.
