Let me explain how I came to choose this word…

Found Poetry Friday #16

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’s been five weeks!

Five weeks!
I’ve been away from my blog for over five weeks!

What did I say in my last blogpost? I would take a blogbreak to “…handle and get rid of the the loose ends of the past year… Yah, right. But I certainly did not plan my break to last this long… Ah well, you know how it is. You read a book, do some cleaning, take a walk, cook a diner and before you know it weeks have gone by… and let me tell you already; my blogging will certainly show more gaps this year as 2014 will be the year of change for me. For one: we will definitely move houses. I don’t know where we will end up, but I’m sure the moving process in the near future will keep me from blogging yet again.

Anyway, we’re not that far yet so today I’m here. And yes, I DID get “rid of some loose ends of 2013.” I even created new art journal pages and started working on a new project as well…  not to forget that I also re-designed my website (it’s about finished, the old site will be replaced with the new later this week!) But let’s not reveal everything at once…

Loose Ends
{and announcing a break}

Goodmorning sweeties… are you used to spend your days without listening (and creating) to the Top 2000 yet? Or are you still having trouble kicking the habit? It was major fun, wasn’t it… to create to the music, and what an overwhelming amount of submission came in every day. Thank you all so much, I had a fabulous week! To top it off, I will show you my pages one more time – as well as my finished journal – because there is a story behind the entries I created for the Top 2000 party. Here we go:

Today is the last day of the Top 2000 – and we go out with a BANG! So many beautiful songs will play on the radio today, and so many beautiful art pieces came in for this last blogparty-post… (and still there’s more coming in, people also still submit pieces with ‘higher numbers’ to go in former post… so even if you’ve seen last week’s posts, check them out for new art as well.) And now, let’s not hesitate: go see all the awesomeness in today’s post!

Turn your music boxes on to hear “the Top 2000 list” play!

More and more participants join me every year and the Top 2000 blogposts are filled with the most wonderful art pieces. Thanks everyone, for playing along and submitting your art!
Here are all the art pieces I received ordered by number (counting down.)
If there is more coming in today, I will add them to this post and change the number at the top, so you only have to look at the number to see if there’s more added during the day.

(If you want to play along you better hurry, ’cause this is the last day… anyway, read this post for details )
