First, I cut a heavyweight piece of acetate paper (like what you’d use on an overhead projector) that I purchased from the copy service department at OfficeMax into fourths. Then I cut petal shapes out of each section of the paper using an Exacto knife.
I had him to draw the center of his flower in the middle of the paper, approximately the size of a quarter.
The color from the marker was swept into the center of the stencil, creating a wonderful texture!!
After repositioning the stencil, reapplying the marker, and brushing it in toward the stencil’s center several more times, he had enough petals to complete the flower.
