I'm trying to think of projects that keep the images-so no paper beads or weaving. The books are unused.
One problem I have with decoupageing printed pages-often the printing on the back bleeds through. Does anyone have a solution for that?Some pages I want to cut out word balloons,ect-if there's a way to glue them to cover things without the dreaded bleeding through.I plan on cutting out the phrase"Velma could see nothing without her glasses" for my glasses case.And maybe some shaggy & scooby food pics for the kitchen.
I've done two projects so far-I cut out a tiny batman pic,and a word balloon "Stop him,Batman!"
 I took a votive candle and placed the paper on it. I lighted a second candle,and held a spoon over it. You have to look and make sure it doesn't get sooty. I rubbed the back of the heated spoon over the image,and the wax kind of melted over/into it. The printing on the back showed through,fortunately it was just a little bit.
And I made a card for a friend with one of the covers. But what else can you make that uses a whole page? I'd love to hear your ideas!Thanks!

Cool lizard! I've heard of using contact paper or packing tape to cover paper, but the packing tape transfer technique is new to me-Could you enlighten me?  I'd thought about covering a page with plastic for a bag maybe, but I love what you made. It opens up more possibilities.
The googly eyes are a great touch. Aren't shag and scoob always bug eyed from fear anyway? Thanks for the idea!

i am no packing tape expert!  LOL  I've only done it twice, but it couldnt be easier.  (I am sure there are tutes here, thats where I learned about it!!!!)

You just put a piece of clear packing tape over your image.  rub it real hard with the back of a spoon (or something).  you can kind of see when its burnished enough, it becomes very crisp and clear.

then you soak in a in water and rub the paper off.  soak and rub, soak and rub, until the paper is gone.  your image is left on the tape, ready to use.

What do you mean, "it isn't supposed to explode"?

I have seen a few paper glues that are specifically designed not to change the color or opacity of paper- one even mentioned not making tissue go transparent!  Not my area, so I didn't save names, but try an art supply store (not just a craft store) and see what they have.

Have you tried scanning the pages?  I don't have one, so I don't know about bleed-through...Oh!  try a copier---I use the one @ church and I know you can adjust it to reduce/eliminate the bleed-through problem.  And of course I'm sure someone will point out the whole legality issue of scanning/copying copyrighted material......sigh

oooh, I use my son's coloring book pages as patterns for paper pieceing and quilting.  I know you don't want to destroy them, but you've got the perfect pattern right there for making a fabric batman etc!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
