I mixed up plenty of green for the background, adding in a little yellow to add brightness to the green and to perfectly match the cushions I already have in the kitchen!
A lovely cheeky quote to use: "Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go" - Oscar Wilde.
- 1 terracotta flower pot
- 3 paintbrushes, thick, medium and thin
- Green, pink, white acrylic paint
Step 1: Mix green paint to the required shade. Put a little paint on a piece of white paper and hold it up to the Aura-Soma image above to get close to the exact color.
Step 2: To get an even coverage its always best to give two thin coats of paint rather than one tick coat. Leave at least two hours to fully dry.
Step 3: Mix red or crimson with white to get a pale pink. To get the affect I have on this pot, don't mix the colors too well, leave them a little streaky. Paint the petals using a U direction with the brush. Allow to dry.
Step 4: Mix white acrylic paint with a little water to make it easier to apply, and use a thin brush to decorate.
Step 5: Pale Olive Green & Pink are about happiness, peace and joy in the journey that lays in our future. So I wrote a quote of Pope John Paul II "The future starts today, not tomorrow".
Step 6: Leave the pot overnight to ensure it is completely dry and give one good coat of varnish. Allow to dry in a clean place free of dust.
Step 7: Put a lovely plant in the pot! I have basil in mine and it sits by my kitchen window!
