Found Poetry Friday #16



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.’

Here’s my found poem for this week…


I cut the texts from old magazines. The background is a collage made out of (pieces of) maps, pages from an old atlas and parts from a tourist travel book. I used spray ink to bring the pieces together. The circles are made with bubble-plastic and acrylic paint and I made the silhouet stand out by using watersoluble crayons.

Did you find a poem last week? Please share it!
Use the InLinkz list below to leave a link to your found poetry art/post.

    Ik zag dit werk net op FB en wilde een reactie plaatsen… snap het niet, kon het alleen maar ‘liken’ of ‘delen’… Nou ja, dan maar even overstappen naar je blog; erg mooi meis! Ik hou van die lekker felle kleuren en je ondergond van een oude atlas en een toeristenboekje is ook een heel goede keuze geweest!!
