Step 1:

Get your balloon, then pull the inside out. Insert the small marble until it is in the bottom of the balloon. Then using the rubber band, secure the marble tightly. Now reverse it back again.  Blow some air into the balloon and tie it. This is what you’ll use to make the petals of the flowers.

Step 2:

Now it’s time to paint! Drop some magenta paint or your preferred color on your painting palette. If you don’t have one, just put it on a surface a few inches away from your painting so you won’t damage your art. Dip the end of the balloon into the magenta color and press it gently into the canvas to create the petals of the flowers. Make a few flowers. Next, using your brush and the green paint, create the stems and leaves of the flowers.
