Step-by-step tutorial

Take the glass out of the picture frame and place it on the template. The motif is printed in reverse because the colorful plants are painted on the back of the glass.

Start with the delicate details on leaves and flowers. Draw fine lines and dab small dots.

Now fill all the shapes with color. Make sure you let the colors dry well before adding colour to shapes directly next to each other and draw around the small details.

Once the motif has dried, you can turn the glass over. Use the picture frame as a spacer so you don't scratch the back when you design the front.

Take the white Chalk marker and draw leaves, flowers and small twigs on the glass plate according to your taste.

Place the glass in the frame with the white motif facing down and carefully place the coloured paper on top. Then place the cover plate of the frame and close it. Your own little piece of urban jungle is ready!
