"Discarded" series continued...

I finished another piece for my "Discarded" series called "Discarded: Please Recycle This Envelope". The title is a bit long but it's the only one that really resonated with me. If you click on the image to enlarge it, you will see that I used an envelope that has the saying "Please Recycle This Envelope".

Besides the "Please Recycle This Envelope" envelope, I used a yellow greeting card envelope, used coffee filters and red leather. 

I have 2 more ideas for this series that I hope to start soon. In the meantime, I need to start working on a large scale fiber piece (30"x 50") for a group exhibit. 


  1. I like how you used envelopes that would otherwise be discarded and capitalized on the message contained on the inside of the envelope. Melding these envelope strips with elements that would also be ordinarily destined for the trash, such as the used coffee filters, is brilliant. Then, by introducing red leather strips, the piece becomes quite elegant.
