Preparing the canvas, Iron the canvas to remove most of the wrinkles and creases.
Lay the canvas on a flat surface and place the embroidery hoops on top leaving 2” spacing between each hoop and 1” around all the perimeters.
Using a pencil, trace the outer edge of the embroidery hoops. This solid line will mark the area to paint within.
With a pair of fabric scissors, cut out the circles 1″ away from the pencil marks.
Next, working one canvas circle at a time position one of the stencil succulent shapes over the canvas in the lower right half of the circle and trace it with a pencil. Continue tracing the other stencil shapes around the first succulent, adding foliage shapes around the outer edges.
Repeat this with the other two canvas circles by choosing which shapes to place on each.
Painting the canvas, place one of the prepared stencilled circles on your work surface.
Paint one succulent at a time. Using a small flat tip paint brush, paint inside all the larger stencilled areas. Its best to use a thin coat of paint so that the canvas texture is still visible.
Repeat with the pink succulents and the blue succulents.
And lastly, paint all the foliage using Avocado acrylic paint
Framing the hoop art once dry, insert the painted canvas circles into the embroidery hoops.
Fold in the outer cut edges and glue in place so edges are not visible from the front.
Hang on your wall to enjoy!
