Step 1

With your pencil in the compass, draw a full circle in the center of your page.

Step 2

Along the edge of the circle, place compass point anywhere and draw a half circle.

Step 3

Starting where you just drew the half circle, draw another half circle. Continue until your first flower layer is done.

Step 4

To create more 'petals', start new arc (half circle) from a point between any two of your existing petals. Continue as Step 3 and create second flower layer.

Step 5

Tombow dual brush pens - set of 8 pastel markers

Tombow marker colors used in this project:

  • Green - 243
  • Blue - 451
  • Pink - 761
  • Yellow - 090
  • Gray - N60

Color in petals with Tombow markers and outline with felt tip black pen. Feel free to add your own embellishments like dashed lines, spirals, whatever you're feeling like drawing.

And you're done!
