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 the first half of my original blogposts from 2014 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.

Its Friday again so time for a found poem
This week I found a coloring page from Flow magazine. And one bird stood apart from the crowd.
Found matching words.
And with a little grammar twist this is what it became:
It's the split second where you decide
I have to be alone less

It is Friday again and this week I have a new found poem for you.
If you never made one, just start it is easy. You can use an old background you have lying around or create a new one. You could even do it on a blank background.
Then just collect words and sentences from a magazine, junkmail or newspapers. Then without overthinking combine them on the page.
I collect all kind of written tekst and keep them in a folder.
This week I started with the found text Let's Play. I also had left over scraps from die-cuts on my table and an orange paper bag. The scraps I cut into smaller pieces. Made a background with yellow acrylic paint and glued the torn strips of the orange paper and the cut scraps to the background.
Added the words Let's play and some other found words. To finish the page I played a little with a few markers and this is my simple page for this week.

This week I used a background with dylusion spray stencil, one leftover from another project. This time it is a bilingual poem with good advice.
I will give translations in total dutch and total english down below.
