So, inspired by one of Donna Downey’s “Inspiration Wednesday” lessons, I dug out some book text that I’d had in my stash forever, and randomly glued them down to my art journal. They were from a children’s book, which I chose because of the large size of the type. But, little did I know what those pages would reveal. I can’t recall ever doing this “found poetry” technique before, and having used pages from a children’s book, I didn’t expect to find anything meaningful. Was I ever wrong.
I haven’t decided whether or not to give it a title, mostly because I can’t come up with anything that fits, so here it is. The only thing I “edited” was the punctuation.
And, just so that you don’t think I’m really a fabulous poet (lol), who was able to write something meaningful about her life as it happened over the last six months… here’s the journal pages, with the words I “randomly” picked from the children’s book text. I’m still a little blown away by this.
So, now I will finish this journal page. Art has, and will continue to get me through ANYTHING. 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by. Have you ever tried this technique? If not, you MUST. And, please share your results. I would love to see them! 🙂
