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.’
Some time ago, Michelle LaPoint Rydell asked me: It would be really neat to see a blogpost of how you go about coming up with your poems. Do you lay a whole bunch of phrases out and then pick from that or do you look for certain words or how does that work?
There are several ways to find a poem – for one thing, it depends on if you want to create a poem with booktitles or maybe you like to tore out an old bookpage on which you outline certain words. However, today I show you the process I went through to find a poem from cut out words and sentences.
I created this background in my art journal earlier this week, and now I grabbed it to use the pages as a base for my found poem. I took step-by-step photos during the process… you can enlarge each photo for a better view. Enjoy!
And here’s the finished art journal spread… (I must confess, I like the ‘detail photo’ above better than the spread… the orange paint came out a bit too harsh.)
Did you find a poem last week? Then share it!
