Go follow @elleluna on instagram. She created this movement and I am joining so I can get more creative with what I do.
I choose the black out poetry project because I tend to abandon things after a few days and sharing it on here will force me to blog! I am just a big ball of procrastination and forgetfullness.
Here is the last black out poetry I worked on today and I will remind myself to only do one a day to pace myself and also not feel as overwhelmed so if I miss a day, I can easily catch up.
Entry and exit
Hope you all gained a little inspiration and let me know of you will join me in this creatove endeavor.
Stay blessed, Vanessa.
As I was surfing threw the vast creative world that is youtube, i learned about black out poetry.
I have seen many photos via tumblr and wondered what it was and now I can say that I really enjoy this process especially on days that i simply can not place words together.
This creative outlet is unlike anything I have come across of and actually feels soothing, its the best way I can describe it to be for me anyways.
Here is the first one I managed to create.
I placed washi tape on the corners of the pages I did create. Since this book is a thriller, it will be interesting to see all the finished poems.
Here’s the cover of the book:
I will revamp the cover to suit me better and the poems I end up creating from it.
If you would like to see more photos of the poetry I wind up creating, please visit my tumblr.
