The first TrashPo Bubbles posted on Friday, prompting the question, "What is a TrashPo Bubble, anyway?"
A little back story is needed here: The first piece of mail I ever sent to Nancy Bell Scott announced that I love to repurpose the beautiful packaging from my art supplies. (See her original blog post of that piece here:http://iuoma-network.ning.com/profiles/blogs/lovely-card-from-lynn-... Long have I hoarded the prettily printed cardstock backings... I still love using them in my collages.
That being said, the natural progression came when I joined DKult. (Thanks to DK, KDJ, DVS, Angie & Snooky and the rest for showing me what I was missing!) I began looking at all the cool packaging I'd been hoarding in a brand new way... The plastic bits took on new life as I saw their potential to be so much more than just pieces for assemblage art.
This was my first TPo Bubble composition:
I began building collage compositions of trashpo within the plastic "bubbles" which originally held consumer goods. The trashpo told a story, as it always does. Thus, the TrashPo Bubbles were born.
The first piece was spawned from my three-part series on TrashPo Mindfulness and became a three-part series entitled, "Be GENTLE with yourself." This is the second piece in that series:The third in the series is not quite finished. I need some time at the Shrine for further enlightenment.
So as not to become stagnant, I moved onto single, stand-alone bubbles like this one:
Any questions, class?
