1. Starting with the flat brush, Place your brush upright on top of the skin. Push the brush up around then back to the starting point. You may want to practice this a few times.  Here is a blog article on how to use Rainbow Split Cakes and One strokes   if you would like more in depth information.


2. Complete more petals rotating in a circle Don’t worry so much around messing up, you can move quickly as the leaves will fill in to even out.


3 Using the medium round brush, add the leaves in around the flour. Start at the middle of the flour then flick brush out to the tip of where you want your leaf. Repeat on each side.  Using the berry wine color, add a cluster of dots in the center of the flour. Add tiny tear drops over each leaf.



4. Add a series of swirls. Start with the metallic green and add a thick swirl to the top and bottom. Next, add a touch of light green.

5. Using the smaller round brush, add white details to the design. Add various expressive swirls around the flour. Add a series of tear drops between the leaves and vine. Add some white over the flour as well, and a few white dots in the center.


5. Outline the design in black. There is a simple and quick flour!
