Recycled Art Using Plastic Bags

I’ve been using my paper trimmer for slicing up junk-mail and supermarket receipts with coupons printed on the back, gluing these onto paper, but not knowing quite what to do with them. Over the last week I’ve been thinking about different ways that plastic supermarket bags could be used for art. I bought a kind of sharpie that is for writing on plastic, and today while trying it out, got the idea to then stick it over the paper collages. I think the result has a lot of potential to become affordable decorative art:
