Wow, Margaret. This collection -- great looking work.

Would you mind saying a little more about the use of the acetate transparency?
I have a few commercial ones I picked up along the way and I've tried printing (ink jet) on overhead transparency stock.
Do you glue the transparency directly onto the collage? Or do you scan the transparency on top of something else then use that printed image in the collage? Or something else?

Hi Ken - in an earlier life on dA, I put together a tutorial here:


These days, I attach transparencies onto the collage (either as part of the background, or as an overlay) using either glue dots (scrapbooking supply stores have these) or double-sided sticky tape.

Glue sticks, I have found, are not a permanent solution, whereas the tape and glue dots really grip!
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the link and the tips. For sure it helps.

The dots and tape are transparent?

I wonder about a spray adhesive. Every now and then I break down and use one. Usually when I'm trying to adhere a larger than normal (for me) piece of paper. But it seems like it might work on the reverse side of a transparency as well.

The glue dots are transparent, but visible.  You can actually use them as part of the overall design.

Have a look here

The tape is transparent and generally less visible.  It comes in a range of widths, too.

I've never tried adhesive spray, but it would be worth a shot, I think.
Collagistes do it by trial and error, after all!
