Usually, my Trash Bubbles are created from one, single post consumer package. Often, they are too small to mail as art and are used as ornaments and gift tags, or are added to a larger flat piece for posting.
This time, I broke the confines of my own definition by building a piece made up of FOUR!!! identical packages.
Introducing the Original Quadra Trash Bubble!
These pieces were anchored together using Tim Holtz’s Tiny Attacher, permanent double-sided tape and seals.
The interior packing cards were replaced by heavy paper cut to size, and folded accordingly to mimic the original.
Despite using trash as filler for these pieces, I follow closely the elements of art composition. Form. Line. Color. Space. Texture. Doing so turns the trashy bits into a cohesive art form.
This particular piece is heading to a fellow mail artist in New Hampshire. You may recognize him as having been around a while.
Be sure to check back next Tuesday for another installment of Tuesday Trash Bubbles.
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
