On a protected work space, paint the entire sheet of paper with your favorite color and let dry a
while.

Spray the back of the leaves or flower with the adhesive glue and tack it onto the painted surface. In order that the next paint layer wouldn’t seep under, press down the edges of a leaf really cleanly.

To create smooth and non drippy result, spray the entire surface and leaves, from left to right and from 1-2 feet away. Peel away leaves or flower or anything you wanted to paint – do it really carefully!

P.S. If you want to add some more artistic look, use your detail brush and make some delicate smudges or shadows with a different color paint. Now your extraordinary work is ready to be placed on the wall.
