Ready? Let's draw!

Step 1: 
Let's begin with the Freya Paper Texture No. 2. Swipe it on the first layer in a light grey color and then lock this layer. For all succeeding layers, set it to Linear Burn so that it will pick up the paper texture details.

On another layer, draw a solid circle. On top of that, create a clipping mask layer and color it in using the Freya Wet on Wet No. 8 brush. This will be your background accent. Then begin sketching out the rest of the composition using a 6B or Peppermint Brush.

Then on another layer, begin adding the base colors using the Freya Wet on Dry No. 5 brush.

Step 2: On a new layer, start blending and layering colors using the Freya Wet on Wet No. 3, Freya Dry on Wet No. 4 and Freya Wet on Dry No. 4. Use clipping mask to help you color within boundaries.

Step 3: Now, add that distinct watercolor effect using the Freya Wet on Dry No. 17 Water Tank. Use the Freya Wet on Dry no. 6 to add details to the leaves.

Step 4: And now, add the finishing touches using Freya Stamp Brush No. 17 and 27, and Freya Tip Brush No. 7. Add branches and leaf details using Freya Dry on Dry No. 6.
