  3. To apply stencil: Spray Easy-Tack Repositionable Adhesive on back of first stencil plate. Wait five minutes, and position at top of board. Cover rest of board with craft paper and tape down. Apply 2 to 3 light coats of Blue Ocean Breeze on leaf cut outs and Sun Yellow on flower center cut outs. Let dry.
     
  4. Repeat step 3 with second stencil plate using one light coat of Emerald Green on leaf cut outs.
     
  5. Repeat step 3 with third stencil plate using one light coat of Rich Plum and overspray with one light coat of Mountain View on flower cut outs.
     
  6. Reposition third stencil plate again and apply two light coats of Ballet Slipper on flower cut outs.
     
  7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 on middle and lower half of wooden plank.
     
  8. To make height graduations: Use tape measure and paint pen to mark height graduations on sides.
     
  9. To make frames: Apply 2 to 3 thin coats of Blue Ocean Breeze to primed wood rings. Let dry. Add floral detail by positioning flower stencil on ring and apply rich Plum, Mountain View, and Ballet Slipper. Glue photos to back of rings. Use cup hooks to hang frames.
