SIMPLES Week 6 - Mixed Size Dots

Hi Goddesses

Welcome to Week 2 of our 4-week dotting tool rotation.  Today we have one of the most beautiful ways to use dots, yet somehow, it's the one I use the least - I really am going to have to correct that.

Today we're looking at using dots in 2 sizes.  A couple of hints and tips here - 

* make sure there is sufficient differential in your dot size - so pick your biggest and then something close to your smallest

* top coat before you apply your dots.  Sometimes dotting tools leave impressions, so I like to seal my base with Poshe first

* the emphasis here is on RANDOM placement.  Start with the large dots, but make sure they don't form a regimented pattern

Here's the video - apologies for the weird angle, but I am struggling to find the perfect set-up for my videos :( 

I don't have many examples of this on my own blog, just this one - 

However, the lady who is Queen of this technique is Emma from Em's Little Corner.  Dots is her staple diet - just look at some of these -

Even more amazing, Emma did her own tutorial a few weeks ago - be sure to check it out HERE.

And finally, just a couple more examples of this gorgeous technique -

I think this one is my favourite EVER- image source
