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 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 poem on an art journal page.
When I looked through my stash of cut-out sentences, the words “Your Eyes!” spoke to me… I went from there to finish the poem. After I’d composed my poem, I flipped through fashion magazines looking for a face that has big eyes. I created the background with old newspaper-pages and glued the image on. I blended the image nicely into the background with gesso, leaving only the eye visible.
The page layed on my desk like that for a couple of weeks, until I received a surprise package with bister from Elvy. After testing the bister (and getting excited, what a wonderful stuff!) I knew what to do with this page… I sprayed some water and sprinkled blue and green bister on it and I’m happy with how it turned out!
Did you find a poem last week that you wanna share?
