Wow, thanks for the links!  I think I'm gonna try that Picnik one. Seems the easiest to navigate.

Also found a picture of my neice and her baby on Facebook that was "digitally sketched" and I'm gonna try doing that one up.  *Crossed fingers*  Hope it works out! 

Thanks again for the help!

On picnik after you have uploaded a picture, I go to the "create" tab. Then I found two options that work with different pics, 1) under "effects" go to "posterize" adjust to 2 colors with 100% detail  2) under "sandbox" go to "adjustable Threshhold" and play with the settings.
That is what worked out well for me.  Grin

To fail is to try in the first place.

Just wondering if you could use clear candles to mask out the areas, then remove afterwards with a warm iron and brown paper?

Great tutorial btw, thanks for sharing.

This is AMAZING. I'm getting my masking fluid and going to town! 

Also I know a way to make a "poor man's lightbox." I have always wanted a light box but didn't want to spend the money/find a place to put it. The window is good but a little awkward.  Get yourself a clear glass baking dish, a nightlight with a cool burning bulb and an extension cord. It works out pretty well  if you tape your image down and then move the light around as needed. 

thats a good idea, i used a glass shelf from my bookcase two chairs and a lamp, lol, it was very awkward, need to get myself a nightlight Smiley

This is watercolor paper? Yikes! I haven't had the masking fluid pull up ANY paper ever... Is your paint (and paper) completely dry before you start the peel?
