I started collaging inkjet iron-on transfer paper, as I posted in this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71232.from1146674187;topicseen#new
If you don't feel like clicking on the link for the full explanation, here's the short one:  I scan fabric, paper, etc., into my computer; print it on inkjet transfer paper; cut it to make the shapes I want (normally using Googled images as a guide); iron it piece by piece; and keep the leftovers for future projects.  Thrifty.

I have several new ones that I sent out in swaps, including several showing dark-fabric transfer paper (I don't think it adheres quite as well, and it doesn't give that semitransparent look when it's layered, but I still like the results).

Owl made mostly with images from a 1960s vintage dress (the "right" and "wrong" sides of the fabric):



A pair of pillowcases, featuring scans of the same fabric (but on light-fabric transfer paper):



Mexican folk art designs, made with images of a crinkly pink skirt and my own handmade paper (which I sent in an earlier swap):



My favorite.  I scanned a dictionary (the page with "tattoo"), a comic book, some sort of smiley self-help book in Japanese, the Greek New Testament (with Latin footnotes), and a map of Mexico City from an old textbook.  I printed a black section and used a friend's letter punches for the text.  Here's the one I'd have had trouble giving away if I were a librarian and/or had tattoos:

(Thanks for mcc for the Photobucket resizing advice!)

I ran out of space on Craftster's picture host, and woo-wee that picture from Photobucket is big! 

On photo bucket there is an option right below the photo where it will automatically down size the photo for you. You have two choices.. chose one and hit ok and then your pict will be smaller. Just thought I'd let ya know!  Wink

Thanks for the nice words.  I was really excited by the way the librarian shirt turned out.   Smiley

Thanks, mcc, for the resizing advice.  It was really easy.
