Default Printed tissue paper for collage

I have two rolls of Tim Holtz ideology "tissue wrap." I love that they are simple, black print on a heavy, yet somewhat translucent "tissue" paper. But for some reason, they are no longer available in the 12" roll that comes out of the box like foil or plastic wrap. The 12" version has been replaced by a 6".

I have looked online for printed tissue paper but I don't know if it's what I'm looking for. I worry that it might be actual tissue paper, the really thin stuff that tears easily. And what I'm seeing is expensive. It costs about $8 for two 20" x 30" sheet. That is an awful lot of money if it's the really thin tissue paper used in gift boxes.

Anyone have ideas for a good substitute for the Holtz paper? Or maybe you use something different for art journals and collage type work?

Have you considered creating your own paper by stamping images on deli paper or parchment?
I've stamped on deli paper with archival inks and acrylics with good results.

I have been crushing on Craft Consortium's decoupage paper for the past two years...so detailed and beautiful. But it is tissue paper not heavy. It can be gotten state side but this way you see all the choices.

How long is it that you noticed the shift to the 6" for the TH paper? If not long it may be in someone's clearance bins still....

I am not sure but what about his vellum stuff? I found this 12' pad at joggles. Not black and white though as a sub?

I think you mean his collage paper-that is a roll....I looked all over and I am not finding any love right now on the 12 inch. sorry. But I would keep an eye on ebay and etsy. Most likely places for it come to the surface...

Margot, I'm not sure when the 12" paper was discontinued. I took a 5-year break from papercrafting, come back and it's gone. I liked the vintage designs and thickness of the Holtz tissue paper. It was not so thin that I'd have to worry about tearing it while brushing on the matte medium. Just as an FYI, these are the discontinued papers that I currently have:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Holtz-Idea-.../dp/B01KVCV1RC

Craft Consortium has some beautiful decoupage paper. I want to use it as the background in an art journal much the way that Vicky Papannaou uses the now-retired 7 Gypsies tissue paper here:

I suppose I could use regular old patterned paper. I hadn't really thought much about that. I'm pretty new to this mixed media/art journaling stuff and not really sure what things work together and what don't.

Bohodiva, I had not considered using deli or parchment paper. I don't know where to get deli paper but I have parchment paper in my kitchen. I can probably stamp on it with archival ink. I wonder if I could run a piece of it through my laser printer? Maybe, if I attached it to a sheet of copy paper and ran it straight through, front to back, like I do with cardstock. I'll have to give that a try.

I do rather like the Tim Holtz narrow rolls when it comes to storage.

What about rice paper? I haven't tried it, and it does run more expensive than tissue. Stamperia rice paper designs are 9"x12".

Finnabair is thin tissue. Have not tried Dress My Craft transfer sheets (about same size as Stamperia rice paper).

I was going to mention rice paper too. I have one sheet from Stamperia that I bought for my daughter but I haven't done anything with it yet... it's almost too pretty to use!

I bought a bunch of Tim's collage paper last year or the year before when Hobby Lobby did their 75% markdown to make room for new stock, but it's the 6" rolls.
