|Liquid Watercolor, Rub-onz Grafix, Ledger Book|
Step one - gather supplies needed for the project. Grafix Rub-onz, Grafix Doubletack Adhesive Film, Grafix Acetate self-adhesive, substrate (I used watercolor paper 16 x 20), liquid watercolor, acrylic paint, colored pencils, brushes, matte medium, collage resources, scissors, craft knife, plastic 1" putty knife, jet-ink printer. Below you see that you can create a watercolor piece of art or use one an image that already exist.
Step Two - follow the directions on the Grafix Rub-onz, print the image on the matte side of the film.
Step Three - peel the white liner paper from the Rub-onz film and adhere the sticky side down to the matte side of the image.
Step Four - Using a putty knife or stick, burnish down the film until all bubbles are removed. Set aside the cut-out image.
Step Five - Begin working on your background. I used a sheet of 200# watercolor cold pressed paper, ledger sheets, acrylic paint and matte medium.
Step Six - Apply matte medium to the substrate (watercolor paper), wet the ledger paper and adhere. Smooth out flat with a putty knife.
Step Seven - Embellish the background as desired with acrylic paint and matte medium.
Step Eight - I drew a window and mounted it on Grafix Doubletack Adhesive Film. I also used a player piano scroll, symbols printed on Grafix Transparency Sheets.
Step Nine - Cut out the window and other collage pieces.
Step Ten - Adhere the collage pieces to the background and embellish as desired.
Step Eleven - Adhere the watercolor flower Rub-onz transfer to the background and embellish.
