Over Printing on Painted Papers

I'm always looking for new ways to use my painted pieces of paper. I saw this idea in a new book I got the other day "Book + Art" by Dorothy Simpson Krause. Take a photograph, scan into computer and change it into a black and white photo. These are some trees I took a picture of that we have on our property. I love naked trees. When you print the picture out use a piece of painted paper instead of copy paper. I used acrylic paints to make my paper. I choose colors that remind me of the sunset at our place in the fall and winter. Lot's of possibilities! I will want to cut this up for collage in one of my journals.
