Materials and Tools:

adhesive
orange colored pencil
cotton swab
white, pink and lavender paper
vellum
chalk applicator
chalking pencils in violet, pastel blue, pastel pink and grass green

Steps:

1. On white paper, draw the outline of a pansy with pink or blue chalk pencil.

2. Smudge the outline with the chalk applicator, pulling the color in about ¼-inch toward the center of the flower.

3.  Color a small oval in the center of the flower with an orange colored pencil.

4.  Add center lines with a purple colored chalk pencil, and then smudge them with a cotton swab.

5.  Fill the remaining white area with pink or blue chalk pencil by scribbling lines close together. Smudge the lines to soften.

6. Cut out the pansy, allowing a 1/8-inch border around the chalked lines.
