How to recycle clear bags to make stunning transparencies for your art

I love to recycle items that I normally throw away. Here is an idea of how you can recycle those clear bags that scrapbook and other supplies come in. I used alcohol inks ( Jim Holtz Adirondack alcohol inks) that I dropped on the clear transparency and used a bottle of air to spread the ink in different ways. This made a very interesting design that I attached to an art trading card and made into

this card that I call " The Perfect Storm".

Now instead of buying so many transparencies for use in my art (mixed media) I can make unusual backgrounds and recycle at the same time. lol
