Wrapped in lush green tissue paper (a paper I cherish as it is not available here), Theresa sends a Trashpo beauty, full of Greek myths and dinosaurs, bond with wispy golden threads!

(Well, Elvis is a god, too!)

Ancient Greek myths and cover from Mannheim!

Inside dinosaurs roam amongst lush colored papers, asemic writings, and delights:

Kisses and hugs to you, too, Theresa...thank you..LOVE this green tissue paper!

(and the postage stamps, too ;-)

Thank you so much for blogging this, Katerina.  Katerina, I'll be sure to send more tissue paper your way.

Yes, Elvis is a God, absolutely, to many people, as they make annual pilgrimages to Graceland, dress like him, and continually play his music.  My own mother collected Elvis dolls and plates. :-) 

The TRASHPO stamp was carved out of an artgum eraser.  I didn't even use a knife, but poked and prodded with my hole punch. 

Thom, afraid all the trash was my own trash, of which I have plenty.  :-) 

Since I teach, I was quite taken with the "cyclo teacher" concept (which I believe I found in an old National Geographic) and want to do an image and maybe even a poem about this.  The well of inspiration never dries here at IUOMA.

Yep, yep, Thom, trashpo is getting "official" with many rubber stamps. YOURS is super!!! 'Got your trash book beauty in the mail today, too! Already blogged by DK! Me waiting to see if "trashpo" will be recognized in the TAM rubber stamp archives? Or on a Brain Cell in the near future? ;-)

Nancy, and Theresa, and my fellow Americans, we don't have "tissue paper" here. We have crepe papers from France, and rice papers (tracing paper), but not this fine colored tissue paper that I once purchased loads of from Hobby Lobby...but which is all gone now. sigh. I love how you can do overlays with it, wet it and make the colors run...fun material!

Geezum Crows!  Is that a handmade "Trashpo" carved stamp, too?  Such lovely images... makes me wanna go dumpster diving in the trash bin you found your stuff in, Theresa!  Your spine binding is amazing as well!

That's a beauty, all right. Woweeeeeee.

K., can you not get only green tissue paper or any colored tissue paper?
