Students will first decide on a color system for their piece. This sample has mostly warm colors for the flowers and a cool color for the stripes in the background. So that the watercolor petals have time to dry, they'll start cutting them out and coloring with either watercolors or markers.
The next step is to cut our thin lines from a magazine that follows their color system.
These strips can be placed vertically or horizontally (another student decision).
Stems and petals are positioned and glued.
And, finally the buttons become the center of the flowers!!
