Ooh, thanks for the tip!  I went to buy masking fluid to play with, and it was $13 (unfortunately out of my budget).  I may even have some rubber cement around here somewhere...


Oooooh !! I have rubber cement too (somewhere Cheesy) and a white crayon!
I wanted to try this but didn't feel like buying that masking fluid so I can try this whoooot !!!(not just for now ... stupid school)

I don't fit in a box, round hole, or any slot that you want to put me in. I am unique, intelligent, funny, passionate, beautiful, spirited and kind. I'm a lover, not a fighter, but will fight when pushed too far. I'm a puzzle it might take you years to figure out, if you can. I am an enigma.

I had that issue too with my rubber cement. I added a tish of food color paste to mine and stirred it in. Made it a lot easier to see!

Love this tutorial!  I had all the supplies on hand, amazingly, and made some for my mom for mother's day (posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303942.0)

Thank you so much for such a great project.  It was great fun!

So I used a couple of pictures that were handy, and came up with these:

My friend, rocking out:

(I'm going to paint the edges with black acrylic at some point to cover up the tape spots.)

Me being true to my islander roots:



I used watercolors from the tube, pan, and some watercolor pencil on the second one.  I basically just used a huge brush to do different colored washes first.  Thanks for inspiring me to re-take up watercolors!  I forgot how fun they are!
