Suzanne Cook

Suzanne Cook’s artistic journey started at the young age of six when she won her school’s art competition.  And, the rest is history.  Her love and passion for art made her design career a foregone conclusion and she has never looked back. Suzanne refined her talent at the University of Georgia where she received a B.F.A. in Graphic Design in 1987. 

From her work to her hobbies and her day-to-day life, everything that is Suzanne is art… Her house is filled with an extensive folk art collection as well as art by herself, her husband and daughter, who both are professional artist.

Suzanne is has a reputation for creating art with a positive, whimsical spin that is always colorful and inspiring. Her dreams really did come true when she was able to become one of Plaid’s Design Inspiration Designers!

A Georgia native, Suzanne lives in Suwanee with her husband

Instructions

  1. Trim image in a circle to fit the globe back.
  2. Lay your trimmed image side facing UP on your craft mat.
  3. Squeeze a generous amount of Photo Transfer Medium onto a foam plate. In smooth strokes, apply the medium over the image. Apply a thick coat so that you cannot see the image. Cover the entire image. Carefully bend the craft mat back to release the image corner. Pick up the image and move to a clean part of the mat. Let dry 24 hours.
  4. After your photo has cured for 24 hours, flip the image over so the paper side is facing UP.
  5. To reveal the image, press a semi-damp sponge over the image in sections and let the dampness set for two (2) minutes. Then rub over the wet paper in a circular motion removing the paper. Repeat until the image is completely revealed. Let dry.
  6. Repeat rubbings may be necessary in parts where the paper is still adhered. Let dry.
  7. Place on the backside of the globe ornament and smooth in place.
  8. Partially fill the ornament with chunky glitter.
  9. Add Silver cording for hanging.
  10. Add Collage Clay over image around to front of the ornament to create a snow look. Let dry.
  11. Paint Extreme Glitter over the dried Collage Clay.
