Back To School Rock Tutorial!

Painting rocks is the new trend going on everywhere. People are painting rocks and hiding them as the kindness project. Think about how happy you would be just walking through a park and find a painted rock with an inspirational phrase or beautiful art. If you want to hide the rocks you paint be sure to add @brittscreativecrafts on the back of your rock so, when someone finds your rock they know where to post a picture. If you find other rocks you can still post them on my page so, everyone can see how far their rocks travel. Today we are painting back to school rocks. They are so easy and with many possibilities you could paint a ton! My tutorial teaches you how to paint an apple but, you can paint anything like crayons, scissors, and even paper.
