Photos into the Weave

I've been wanting to try adding photos to the weaving and now I have - this photo is printed on the ready to print cotton sheets. When I pulled it off the backing, I thought to try to iron the backing onto the natural dyed silk from yesterday and ran it through the printer again. The result is muddier then I would like, so I may wash the silk again to remove the photo and still keep it for something else. But now I know that the paper sized backing of the commercial printing sheets can be reused for putting photos on my hand dyed cloth.
