Phillip is hosting this Found Poetry swap again. It was so much fun when we did it before. To view previous mail art with this theme, check out Older Posts dated 05/08/14, 05/04/14, 05/02/14, 04/21/14 and 04/15/14.
To get started, on a single page of text, find and select a few words or phrases. Cover the rest of the words (with paint, ink, white-out, narrow collaged strips, etc.) to make the words or phrases stand out to create a poem. It doesn't have to rhyme...
For each post card, create a background in any style you like, using your choice of techniques and supplies. If you are going to cut out text for your poem, please do not compose something yourself and then print it out on your computer. No digital art efforts please.
Search for "found poetry" in Google Images and you'll see lots of examples.
