Found Poetry Friday #18

found-poetry-badge

 

I love poetry.
I am especially fond of ‘found poetry’, and I mean found in all its forms… found in book titles, found in magazines, on book pages, cut out words and sentences – you name it. There is so much possible when it comes to ‘found poetry’… and this kind of poetry is also great to use on art journal pages also.

I therefore started FOUND POETRY FRIDAY – everyone is welcome to play along!

There is an “Inlinkz”-list at the end of this post. If you want to share your found poems, you are welcome to add your name to the list that will link us to your blogpost.

You can post your found poem on your own blog any time during the week, so you don’t have to make YOUR Fridays all about poetry – you just link us to the post that contains your poem. Please use the url that goes directly to you ‘found poetry post.’

It is the last Wednesday this year that I will share my desk… because next week, on X-mas day, all hell will break loose on my blog as the Top 2ooo Musical Blog Party starts December 25th! (And as far as you did not know yet: YOU too are invited to join the party!)

But today is still ‘normal,’ so come on in and I show you a golden oldie scrapbook layout and of course a photo of my desk! Oh, and I throw in a brand new art journal page also…

Get It On! {Monoprints}

 

Art, and especially art journaling, can be very therapeutic and healing. In the mids of time when I was in a very dark place, I shut down. I was completely absent-minded and could not even see a pen or brush. However, the moment I saw a little light around me, my art journals were the first things to grab and hold on to. Writing has always been my ‘way out of it’ and since I started art journaling, the art-part has been add to that.

A few weeks ago, my friend Anne-Marie emailed me song lyrics that she thought I might like to read because in her eyes the text was referring to what I felt at the time… and she was right!

The lyrics are part 2 of a song by the Dutch artist Bram Vermeulen. Translated, the title means something like “Get it on!” I could only find Bram performing part 1 of the song on the internet (De Beuk Erin I – a song worth listening to, especially if you understand Dutch) but I used the lyrics of part 2 on my pages. De Beuk Erin II (lyrics)

I made just the perfect monotypes to go with the text…

Tales from the Studio & woyww#225

 

Wednesday… “Into the Studio” day… time seems to fly! I did spend quite some time in my studio last week and my work desk is still loaded with stuff (see the photo at the end of this post.) I also spend time at the big diner table in our living room, playing with my homemade gelatin plate. Lots of you were curious about that plate, so come on in and I show you what I created with it.
