    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Kisa asked:" What is the special clear acetate-like paper one can use to print a photograph to use on a card? And where can I get it? "
    A: You can buy the right kind of transparencies for your printer at Staples, Office Depot, etc. Just check and see if they are for ink jet or laser printers.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Jan has a suggestion for the Dryer Sheet Flower: "I did something similar recently using tissue paper from a Starbuck's purchase....they have really cool tissue they use when wrapping mugs, etc. that you purchase from them...really earthy."
