- Hit the highlights. Dana printed her text on the front of the transparency and then added paint on the back to highlight certain words, making it look as if they were printed on the paint.
- Forget freehand painting. If you're unsure of your artistic ability, avoid freehand techniques. Both the title and the orange hearts were created with foam stamps, which offer a great way to get the painted look without a steady hand.
