Last night, whilst experimenting with the new CIS on my printer, I discovered the joys of overhead projector transparency film. You can add text by putting these transparent pages in between other fixed pages in altered books. If a book is being constructed from scratch, there are far better methods, but when your support is too thick to go through the printer, they're a great work-around; adding another layer to the image.
One problem, is that you have to be very careful when attaching them, as wet fingers immediately imprint onto the film. There's a coating that the print adheres to, which is not stable and easily picks up residue from fingers or from the other pages. I had to make sure the petal hearts were coated with acrylic wax and thoroughly dry before sticking the transparency in.
