Step 1

First draw the stems. Take a green marker and draw three stems going from the top of your paper to the bottom. Be sure that they are different lengths so that they are whimsical and not totally the same.

Next draw some leaves with the same green marker. Draw two leaves on each stem near the top like the photo below. Then take a lighter colored green marker and draw some details onto the leaves.

With a dark pink marker, draw three circles that are not totally perfect. Draw these about 1 inch above the top of each stem. This will be the top of the rose.
