After visiting Susie's blog I came across a technique I had learned a while back. I wanted to see if it would work with my inkjet printer because the inks are pigment inks. That attempt failed, but I went ahead and used the technique with a magazine image as she did. I also tried it on a magazine image of a garden, but it did not come out so well because the background was so dark. It really did not look transparent because there was no white space. You can visit Susie's blogs and look at her instructions. She has lots of valuable instruction for art techniques and for blogging on her various blogs. Be sure to check them all out. Have a happy day!
