I tried rock dotting for the first time

The last few months, I've been stalking, I mean, looking into videos on dotting rocks.
I've been slowly accruing the required items: dotting tools, paint, rocks, and
finally decided to stop procrastinating and actually paint some.
I found this tutorial and thought I'd give it a go.
Here's what I made:


 In the video, she added tiny white dots between all the colored ones. I
didn't want to screw up the design any more than I did, so opted to
leave the white dots out. Some close-ups:









 My plan from the start was to distribute these around the neighborhood,
to be found by observant people. On the bottom of the rocks I added affirmative notes.


I had so much fun painting these! Now I'm off to find another 
pattern to paint. ☺

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
