INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: This inspirational project could be created on your own or you can make it into a fun collaborative effort with your family, friends and neighbors . . . Here's how . . . . 1. Ask your family,friends and neighbors if they'd like to participate in a "rock swap". For best results and greater participation . . . Keep it simple! Rocks can be polka dots, hearts, stars or inspirational words. 2. Once everyone has completed their rocks . . . Let the swapping begin! ((because rocks are small, it's very easy to just drop them off at one another's mail boxes) 3. Place rocks in a wooden bowl, ceramic dish, open box or even scattered throughout your coffee table. The goal here is to have something that will make you smile and feel inspired during these unusual circumstances.

  1. Use a medium brush to base coat rocks in Jadeite Glass, Warm Sunset, Cobblestone, and Moody Blue. Let dry and apply a second coat. Let dry.

  2. Add base desings in Cactus Flower and Jadiete Glass. (refer to provided patterns). Let dry.
