Step 1 - Draw a Circle Guide

To help keep the floral wreath in a circular shape, draw a circle. Enable Transform by tapping the arrow button. With Snapping toggled on, drag the circle and center it on the canvas. The circle is centered when you see the two yellow lines.

Step 2 - Edit the Circle Properties

Open the Layers panel. On the circle layer (Layer 1 in image),  tap the N to the right of the layer name. Lower the opacity of the circle to around 10%-15%.

Step 5 - Set Up the Symmetry Guide

When making a floral wreath, any of the symmetry options will work. Rotational Symmetry is not necessary but can be very helpful. Switching back and forth while drawing the floral wreath is also an option.
Tap Radial to follow along with this tutorial. Toggle Rotational Symmetry on. Make sure Assisted Drawing is toggled on, and tap Done in the upper-right corner. 
Set Symmetry Guide Options
The canvas is now ready for drawing a floral wreath. When using a stamp brush or drawing leaves and flowers for the floral wreath, rotate the canvas as needed. This is especially helpful with stamp brushes as most are static in direction and do not rotate. See the following image for a better understanding.

Step 6 - Start With Leaves

We suggest you start with the leaves. This will be the foundation of the floral wreath.

Step 7 - Add Flowers

On new layers, add flowers in varying sizes to the floral wreath.
