Used plastic tablecloth as a "mask"

Last week I shared with you how I further used my printer ink. On this I used an old portion of a plastic tablecloth as a mask or stencil and sprayed the ink on - leaving a interesting design on printer paper or other paper. Watch my Lavendula Loveliness blog this fall for ways that I used this. I made up sheets in all of the printer cartridge colors.

Crushed Paper in pink

Let me share with you how I made this. I will start by complaining about when I have to remove a printer cartridge only to find there still was some ink in it. I puncture the plastic seal on cartridge and dip it in about 1 cup of water. I then scrunch up a sheet of printer paper and dip it into the ink/water solution, lifting out and spreading on paper towels*. Allowed to dry then pressed with iron before scanning into my computer.
* Note these paper towels can also be used for backgrounds in sandwiched fibre art. Oh so much fun and so little time. Enjoy using this image.
