These lessons offer a first look at casual stroke based roses. We begin with the Sweet Heart Rose, a lovely soft rose based on early stroke rose styles. Then we’ll take a look at a more casual personal interpretation that I call Briar Roses and finally continue the basic technique into full blown tea roses.

Thirty color images, three full color step sheets, designs and techniques combine to make this a wonderful study package! Includes instructions, patterns and photographs for the three unique projects!
