  • Repeat these steps to make another “X” shape over top.  Paint these same shapes all over the surface of the rock.
  • Change to Canary yellow color and repeat.
  • With the back end of the paint brush, dip the end in paint and dab small dots in the center of each daisy using the School Bus color.
  • To fill in the spaces in between, dip your paint brush in school bus yellow and paint small daisies all over.
