  • Primed fiberboard coated with black acrylic

  • Yellow, greenish-blue, white, and black acrylic paint
  • Coin
  • Large round object
  • Pencil


Step 1

Trace a large round object on the board, then mix together the yellow and white acrylic, dilute the paint with water, and coat the leaf with it. Press the leaf on the round line, make sure to apply paint along the leaf on each stamp, then let the paint dry completely, and coat the whole board with a mixture of greenish-blue acrylic and water. Once dry, paint the leaves with diluted yellow paint again, stamp them in an offset layer as shown in the video, and outline the spaces with diluted greenish-blue paint. Sprinkle the yellow paint all over, then let it dry completely, and cover the whole board with greenish-blue water again.

Step 2

Let the paint dry completely, then add a bit of white to the yellow mixture, then paint the leaf with it, and press another layer of leaves. Outline the spaces with greenish-blue, then cover the leaves completely, and add more white to the yellow paint mixture. Paint the leaf and stamp another layer, outline with greenish-blue water, then sprinkle some white, let dry, and cover the whole board with greenish-blue water. Add pure yellow highlights on the leaves, then trace a coin all over the wreath, and paint it white. Outline the white balls with blue and add highlights, then paint the stem white, and paint the background dark blue. Add random sizes of white dots all over and you’re done!
