Found Poetry

so i'm hosting a swap at www.atcsforall.com that requires players to come up with found poetry to include on their ATCs. i haven't made any of these in a while, and now i'm on quite a roll . . . maybe i just needed to find a way to meld some writing exercises with some artwork, so that i can get back into the groove of writing [or at least thinking about writing] more regularly. this card uses an image of an eyelid stitched shut that i've had in my box of images forever . . . it finally seemed like a place it fit quite well. i love how each stitch seems to underline the words.


  1. What a cool image!
    I spent yesterday's afternoon working on some found poetry I used to create a mobile with; it was so much fun, particularly considering the fact that the only English book I had laying around -which I was willing to sacrifice- was "Health for Life" by Scott Foresman ;)

  2. lol . . . sometimes the oddest book choices will make some amazing found poems! i LOVE that! :)

  3. Wow. What a lovely card, stitched eye and all. Only you could make a stitched eye lovely! Beautifully designed, gorgeous colors.

  4. OMG! This is so creepy and so compelling all at the same time. I just LOVE it :D AMAZING!
