Trashpo Post Cards

Decided to try my hand at some trashpo(trash poetry) style post cards.  A new way of seeing. I had recently cleaned out some old ticket stubs etc and thought they could be put to some good use. Here is what emerged from the work table.  Using recycled cardboard as the substrate, a collage of elements I had at hand.

Also a quite cool incoming from Douglas Galloway

    The last one’s my favorite! I have bunches of cardboard pieces, myself. This is a great idea.

    These are very cool! Just yesterday I set a side a Starbucks coffee cup holder on my shelf for later use. Great minds think alike, right?

    Very cool – I misunderstood the trash poetry theme – I focused on the poetry and since I don’t write any, thought it wasn’t for me. But, if it’s about recycling what you have into interesting compositions and postcards, I’m all over that. Love yours and the splash of yellow really brightens the cards. I see you joined this group in IUMOA; folks will be happy to receive these!

    Going minimalist and neutralist… for you anyway…it all works!

    A great idea, dear Corrine, love the way of using -throw out pieces- on cardboard to create a funny card..
