ALSO: I released two videos to YouTube this week. One pertains to watercolor techniques in ArtRage 4 which includes, but is not limited to, the following information:  how to open a new painting, import a scanned stamped image, how to resize the watercolor, gloop, and pen brushes, and how to import pictures to use as color palettes, and then how to use the color sampler to sample colors for use from those pictures. I also demonstrate how to rotate the image, crop, and export the image, and a bit on how to use layers, erase, etc. In the video, I’m using the PC version of ArtRage 4 with a Wacom tablet and stylus. Another benefit of the program you can see in the video below is that you can zoom into an image and see it much larger.  Have you ever wanted to do that in real life with a stamped image?  Just to get into the nook and cranny of the image to color in more detail? As I’ve gotten older, I must admit, coloring images in detail has grown difficult for me to do. This feature could help you.

And in the second video, I show you how I assembled the tag using the image I colored in the above video.

PLEASE share your lovely creations on Facebook with the Unity {show & tell) Facebook group. Lots of us check-in there daily (I check in several times daily—I’m addicted to inspiration).
