Hello everyone! I have two projects to show you today for OOAK Artisan Showcase! I have created two water colored bookmarks using some fun rubber stamps from Whipper Snapper Designs, Inc and my Prima Watercolor Pencils and paper.
These bookmarks are made from Prima Watercolor paper that comes in a convenient 3 x 6.25 inch pad. The perfect size!

Hello everyone! Roberta here with my next project. I decided to use a print of one of my paintings to create a rustic little sign for you. I really wanted to try the freezer paper method for image transfers. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be lol.
You may also need:
Editing software like Photoshop if you plan to create your own text or to resize your image. If you don't have a program like Photoshop you can download GIMP for free.
A charcoal pencil or sharpie marker Acrylic paint or water soluble pastels.
Remember when you create your image especially if it has text, you must flip the image so that you get a reverse image. If you do not do this when you transfer your image onto the board it will be in reverse. If you do not have editing software you can always just print your image, transfer it, and hand write your quote. Lay the printed image over your board to make sure it fits properly and line it up.
If you are satisfied with how everything looks you can coat your board with a thin layer of Matte medium Make sure there are no globs anywhere as this will smear the ink when you are sure the layer of Mac medium is spread evenly and thinly you can place the image printed side down onto the board use the old credit card to burnish the link into the matte medium. Do not let this dry. Remove the parchment paper from the board. The image should have transferred to the board.
Once you are satisfied with everything see you at the board with the spray sealer. Use a drill and drill bit to make holes in your board so you can thread the string through the board and voila!
I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and I hope I have inspired you to use your own artwork in some image transfer projects.

|"Wow!! Time for a new project for the OOAK design team. I am loving the challenges! I used a lot of the same products as last months project, Since I am trying to use the same supplies in as many ways as possible!! This "tool" is a paint brush roll up case but we all know a lot of possibility's for it!|
My newest product to use is the NEOPAQUE flowable extender and it works amazing!! helps with the layering of colors, and seems to deepen some of the colors, I used the dyna flow fabric paint and the fantastix pens to paint the outside of the case in splotches using the neopaque on some to give a little gradation of the colors.
WOW! Jean's project is fantastic! I would love to have one of these in my art box for sure! Don't forget you can visit Jean's blog at jeanpdesigns.blogspot.ca
