I've been experimenting with collage since I have a box full of random scraps of paper. I discovered that my lovely inkjet printer can print on tissue paper without smearing. You can then glue it on magazines, paint chips, etc.

Printed tissue paper on magazine ads adhered to paint chips

I'm thinking about framing these!

These came out really nice, they do look good enough to frame. Did you put the tissue paper directly into your printer or did you have to stick it onto regular paper 1st?

Wow, never imagine that tissue paper would go thru the printer. Great job!

I'm presuming because momma told me to NEVER assume  Grin that you used the magazine step for durability and depth?
