How easy is it to make wall art?  Well, let’s get into the steps right now.

Start by lightly drawing out your basic cacti/Simple Succulent shape using a pencil. (I highlighted mine in the graphic with gray polka dots, below so you could see the shape more easily.)

Then, load up your brush with black paint and trace your cacti/succulent pencil lines.  If you can do this with a single smooth line, it’s best.  Just go with big arching lines.

Next, added lines to the interior of your cacti/succulent and paint a basic pot shape.  I was going for a very simplified look on this art work, so the less tinkering with and perfection the better.

Then using your two different shades of green, add the flowers.

For a final touch, it is time to add in the gold foil to your Simple Succulent.

Brush on thin lines of metal adhesive glue and allow to dry until a slight tacky feel.  Then, apply your gold foil sheets to cover.  Brush off any excess gold leaf and enjoy!

Note:  The gold leaf goes everywhere, so be sure to brush it off near a trashcan or even outside.
