Today’s Trash Bubble will be making a Special Spring Journey to a dear art sister. Rather than continue to allow the horrific news of the day to invade, I escaped to the studio and immersed myself in bits of this and that until this bubble materialized. I feel better for it.
Needing to shed the heavy burden of the day’s news, I chose a post consumer package with a blue floral pattern. It inspired me to sort through my odds and ends for other floral and springy bits.
The lavender colored satin rosebud (probably from an old hand-made boutonniere) and the little birdie from some long ago discarded card became anchors for the bubble which originally held two punches from ek tools. As I searched for a round something or other to pair with the rosebud, I stumbled across the vintage GE strike button which had long ago lost its pin back. I didn’t want to overload the cavities, wishing to keep as much of the printed floral backing exposed as possible.
Floral brads and washi tape (both hand-painted and printed) were added along with colored staples. The result felt very light and springy.
It will probably go in the morrow’s post.
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
