I love, love, love this stuff! When I found these gems, it was the first time I had ever seen microfiche in a film roll format. It's usually in small rectangles (https://www.etsy.com/listing/175955678/). These are images of newspapers, such as The Globe and Mail and The New York Times.

If you just want just blue and/or grey (taupe?), go here:

You can use these everywhere! Because of their see-through nature I really like adding them to altered books and visual journals. Cut a rectangle through two pages, then place the microfiche between them so it's showing through the holes. Now, glue the two pages together. Makes a little window. Very cool.

I've seen these placed between glass and turned into gorgeous pendants.

Wonderful to use, as well, on Artist Trading Cards and in mixed media pieces. Or, how about cutting slits in an altered book page, then weaving a strip through them? Great as borders, too. Soooooo many uses.

Why not 'Favourite' our shop so you can find us, again? After all, it's so easy to get lost on Etsy. :o(

Zip or postal code

I ship via the most economical option available with Canada Post. Canada Post is incredibly reliable, but can be slow. Although not common, It can take up to 2 weeks for a parcel to reach a U.S. destination and 4 to 8 weeks for an International address.

If you are in a rush to receive your goodies and are willing to pay the extra cost, I'm happy to send your parcel via a quicker option. If you prefer faster shipping, just let me know and I'll investigate the cost for you.


PayPal is my preferred method of payment. If you are mailing a cheque or money order, it must be payable to Leanne Bishop, not RubyDog's Art House. I accept both Canadian and U.S. dollars. Orders will be shipped upon clearance.

One of my greatest joys is making custom collage or journal kits for people. If you are looking for a particular theme, let's talk. The more lead time you can give me, the better will be the package.

WHOLESALE: Some kits are available for wholesale. Convo me and we can discuss it.
