Found Poetry Friday
This blast from the past blogpost is about Found Poetry Friday that was organised by Marit Barentsen. This friday event really inspired me to make found poems and since then that is something I still love to do.
Below you will find my original blogposts only slightly edited to fit my new website format. The original blogpost are no longer on my website. Want to know why read this intro post.
Found Poetry Friday July 19, 2013 |
On Marit’s Paperworld Blog it is since today every friday Found Poetry Friday.
You can make found poems in different ways and I have made some in the past inspired by the book Creativiteit geen kunst, Creatief Contact or by Boekselen from Loes Vork. I will try to make something like this each week.
For my page this week I used as a background, an old page with acrylic paint. I love to recycle.
The collaged lyrics come from different magazins. Here are the Dutch and translated into english lyrics.
Pleisterplaats voor de geest Place to stop for the spirit
Kijk je ogen uit Feast your eyes
Als nooit tevoren Like never before
Op het spoor van vertelkunst On the track of storytelling
Er is een mirakel verrricht A miracle has been performed

Marit is having a heat wave blog break, but my computer is standing in the coldest place of the house, so.... It is Found Poetry Friday again and I made another page. This time on a background made with a gelliplate.
Ieder mens heeft behoefte aan Every person has a need for
Een toekomst in vrijheid A future in freedom
Maak je los en laat het gaan! Free yourself and let it go!
Geluksmomenten Moments of happiness
Stap voor stap Stap by stap
Naar de hemel….en terug To heaven…..and back

Friday Poetry Friday again. Marit is still having a tropical heat blog pause but I am still hanging on downstairs in a room of 27 degrees celsius (upstairs it is over 31). Made a weird poem on this for me too hot day. Scanned the picture this time and not photographed as I usely do.
The background is a paper of playing with gelliplate printing.
Wat heb je nodig om gelukkig te zijn? What do you need to be happy?
Geniet van Enjoy
De allerlekkerste The most tasty
kostbare momenten precious moments
Waarom moeilijk doen Why be difficult
Laten we meer lanterfanten Lets be more idle
Maak plezier pluk de dag en geniet Make fun seize the day and rejoice
Aandacht voor Attention to
Echt wakker worden Really waking up

Today it is Friday so its Found Poetry day again. This time I made an effort to do this in English
I had some small papers with mostly song lyrics and a poem from a small FLOW magazine calender and made this small poem on a background of photo paper colored with dylusions. I will give you the picture of the poem and a picture that contains all the numbers where the lyrics are from.
Found Poetry Friday on Sunday? August 18, 2013 |
Been so busy with other things that I totally forgot Found Poetry Friday. Not that that is a problem but, I would like to keep this going for a while. Since I made nothing this week I would like to post an oldie. This one is made with an idea out of the book Creativiteit geen Kunst by Jenny de Bode en Lia Nijman. That book was my start in the field of everything about art journalling and mixed media and more. The idea was to chase words from different magazines and make new sentences. This page I made in may 2010.
Ieder jaar opnieuw Each year again
gedraag je Behave
steeds verrassend Always surprising
toon je respect Show respect
Op zoek naar een uitdagend On the look for a challenging
zo lekker wakker worden met so great to wake up with
een tweede huid a second skin
leuk onbeperkt houdbaar nice keep unlimited
laat de let the
weekendverwenners weekend spoilers
maar komen come

Time flies, friday again and still did not make a new found poetry, so again a dutch oldie from 2010. This is a collage of magazin pictures and text pieces with some doodles.
Stilte wat is het toch fijn Silence it is so nice
Hoe onmisbaar How essential
Dartelen, verwonder, zingen Frolic, amaze, sing
Naar je toe, moois en meer Towards you, beauty and more
Begin lekker stevig Start nice and strong
De boswandeling, schitterend voor je A walk in the woods, magnificent for you
Maak je eigen leven Make your own life

Its Found Poetry Friday again and this time I played with words from a Dutch magazin from a supermarket, the Jumbo. And it is in English. The Dutch language is full of english words and a lot of advertisements use english so I took all those out of the magazin and got a great selection.
By rearranging most of the words I made these pages.

With a vacation without Wifi and too much going on in my life I skipped one week and am late for the next. Here again a dutch oldie with strange lyrics so there will also be a strange translation. Enjoy my fantastic word play.
Vleugel afgestoft blijft leuk Wing dusted remains funny
Verbazingwekkend op tijd Amazingly on time
Kwaliteit is voordeliger Quality is cheeper
Schuiven onvermijdelijk Shoving is inevitable
Geheel opgefleurd wint altijd The whole brightend up always wins

Its Found Poetry Friday again and today I used an old page with collage paper on it.
Words, pictures of hearts and lines with a black marker were added and this is what came out all of that.

A day to late to post my Found Poetry Friday, but who cares. Here is a quicky made on a page from the magazine Flow. Background with Neocolor II and text from the Museumtijdschrift so a dutchie this week with as usual my english translation.
Op de wind geschreven Written on the wind
Sterren in de nacht Stars in the night
als dynamisch proces as a dynamic process
voor fijnproevers for connoisseurs

Found Poetry Friday again, how time flies. This week I combined a few found lines from the magazin Flow and a silly drawing of a girl I had lying around. Glued it all on a page with a gelli print et voila my found poetry page for this week.

This was not a good creative week for me, but I would like to keep this Found Poetry Friday posting going.
So I took a dive into my old pictures and found this page. Made this in 2011 when I was on vacation.
Blijf je eigen draai ontdekken Keep finding your own spin
Behoud je creativiteit Preserve your creativity
Ontdek papierwerk met verbeeldingskracht Discover paperwork with imagination

Totally absent lately. Sorry to much going on in my life and not enough energy to create.
Made a Found Poem on november 15 and did not even manage to post it until now.
So Found Poetry Friday from november 15 posted on november 28 (meant to post it on november 26 but blogger did not work). Hopefully I will get you a new poem tomorrow.

Strange how you can sometimes find words in a magazin. For the first time in weeks I did something creative yesterday, a little as if something should be made. This is the resulting page.

Marits challenge was to use songtitles or lyrics, because we start with the Top2000 blogparty at maritspaperworld very soon. I made a page with left over paper and paint.
Wrote down songtitles from the top2000 list from 2012 and glued them to the page.
The songs I used were:
Hello by Lionel Richie
The show must go on by Queen
Keep your head up by Ben Howard
Let it be by the Beatles
Dont stop by Fleetwood Mac
Just breathe by Pearl Jam
Feel by Robbie Williams
Wind of change by the Scorpions
Note added: In some of the posts you see that there is a lot on my mind and I will clarify that for you by adding this note.
At the end of 2013 I lost my job I had for more than 33 years and to date I still do not have one. I have had a few montly contracts the past 5 years, but in about a month my unemployment pays stops. I will from that day on go on an early retirement and dedicate all my work to making, teaching and hopefully selling art.
