HOW TO

STEP ONE: Squeeze out a few dabs of paint on your craft mat, and dip your paint brush in one color.

STEP TWO: Start drawing with your paint brush and add different colors in. I drew half circles with assorted colors to make full circles.

NOTE: There is plenty of paint leftover on the plate, so I press more paper into them for more impressions.

As you can see, the circles are much more subtle but still really great impressions.
