  1. I used assorted beach rocks and pebbles. Take a walk along the beach, or visit your local landscaping store. Gather assorted dotting tools of various sizes.

  2. Draw a circle on your rock. Mark with a cross to find the center. Dot with Cotton Ball. I like to use the eraser to create large dots.
