Step 1 : Templates

 

Download and transfer the floral wreath templates using Canson® tracing paper on your paper.

In the photo, the following Canson® Mi-teintes sheets of coloured paper have been chosen:

  • Champagne for the large leafy stems,
  • Light Blue for the biggest flower,
  • Icy blue for the two small flowers,
  • Ivy for the stems,
  • Red earth for the berries on the stems.

The centre of the flowers and the wreath are made with Canson® Iris Vivaldi paper in Ultramarine.
Of course, you can choose whatever colours you want!
