You can. You can brainstorm ideas from Pinterest or Web. You don't have to measure the distances between the each and every circle. It's just by infusion and and then reduce the opacity. This will be your framework for the whole design. I know you grease the brush size, my inducing Happy's all the her dot regularly with equal distances between. I'm just beating up the video. It's just the same process, but this is the first set off the design guys. There's the out a set.
