Happy Flower Rocks
We got snow on our first day of spring. I said “Nope” I’m not having it. I’m going to paint something happy and spring and sure to make people smile. We found some smiley face rocks last year and I remember how happy they made my daughter. So these happy flower rocks were just what I needed to fight back against winter.
This style of painted rocks combines an easy flower painting technique with some simple blending. The end result is a fun rock painting idea that I just love! Our Facebook followers had a blast with this tutorial too. Check out what one of our followers created after watching the video!

Step by step instructions for flower rock painting
You can start with a quick base coat or leave your rock natural. I like the look of it both ways.
The first step of this simple flower painting is to paint a bright yellow circle.
Go along the edges of the circle and make marks so that you know where your petals will be. You can make your petals as big or as little as you want. To create the blended petal look, you’ll want the petals to have enough room for two colors, so I suggest you don’t make them too small.
Squiggle the pink paint down the center of a petal followed by some purple on either side of the pink. Take a dry, square tip brush, and gently blend the two colors together with a wiggle motion. Check out the video to see it in action. Make sure to flip the brush over on either side of the pink so that you don’t mix the pink and purple on your brush.
Draw a quick stem and a leaf on the bottom of the flower.
Use a Posca paint pen to draw the outlines around the yellow circle, each petal, the stem, and the leaf.
To draw the face, start with a little tiny smile and line up the eyes with the edge of the smile. Finish off your happy flower rocks with a couple of pink cheeks!
This flower rock painting idea is perfect for the beginner and people who are just learning how to paint rocks.
