On my layout I used 3 different transparencies. The alphabet one I just cut into large rectangles and layered behind my photos. The yellow zig zag one I fussy cut out and layered some below and some above. You can see that I used some mists and paints on my overlays, too.
Here are some more ideas of how you can use transparencies:
- paint them
- stamp on the (with StazOn inks)
- mist on them (but they take forever to dry and will smear a bit...)
- emboss them
- punch them
- use them in a die cutting machine
- melt them with a heat tool (CAREFULLY because they can catch on fire!)
- stitch over them
Now go get those overlays and get creative!
