Are you ready rock painters??? Let's get started...here we go!
Make sure to refer to the articles and videos linked above the DIRECTIONS BEFORE moving forward.
You may want to name it 'smaller pansy images' and save it to your desktop for easy access. By using 'Save As' you are creating a new document and this way you are saving the main image unchanged from the first printing so that in case you had to print it out again for some reason it will be the same size.
You should probably print two copies of the new smaller version of the main image (from the new document you have created. By doing this you will have multiple pansies to choose from; it will depend on how many pansies you think you will need to fill in the empty spaces).
Just play around with the image, flip it back and forth, turn it upside down to get different views because if you have different sizes of the pansies it will give the flowers a more natural look once the ink is transferred to the rock. No two flowers are alike after all!
Here is a picture of what the top of your word processing screen should look like at the top after you hover over the image and click 'Format' if you have Windows...

Print the smaller versions of the pansy basket onto freezer paper. Remember to load the back tray! And don't forget to select 'Rear Tray' when you send the print command.
To reiterate, you may have to do this step of wetting the paper and allowing it to dry between five to ten times before the paper will start to roll off easily enough.
