Layer mounting

I'm mounting a page out of a booklet. Then layering a second page on top of it but slightly lower and off to the right. I used fusion on the bottom one and then PMA on the top one, but I'm not happy with the look. Some of the PMA gets on the edge of the page on top and doesn't have a clean look to it. Any ideas on how else to mount the top one? They are like a light weight poster material.
Why not fusion on the top one too? Have you considered mounting it to a seperate board and then cutting it out and raising it? You could maount it on foamcore and trim it with a reverse bevel or do the same thing with a mat scrap ir you want less depth. You won't have to be so exact on your mounting placement this way and it might be easier. It also gives it a cool look.
You can avoid the excess by pre-trimming the PMA a little smaller than the art.

Or, have you tried a rubber cement pick-up? You can find it at an art supply store in the pencil or the drafting section. It will take off the extra PMA and not leave a smudge.

Have fun.
