Day 16: Blackout Poetry
This was one of my favorite projects so far. I always love blackout poetry. It’s like found poems. Really cool.
I had fun doing this. It was harder than I thought it would be, mostly because I was trying to force a poem instead of just letting one come. Story of my life. I used an old issue of Real Simple magazine for this and incorporated the photo of the canvas from the article (originally it was blank). It’s really three poems in one but I guess you could read it as one poem. Doing a blackout poem really makes you think abstractly which is something I always need work on.
