  1. I like the art collage end result from a found poem so much more than what I did in re-ordering lines from another poet. I gotta make me some visual art. lol

    1. Ooh no your idea sounds like a very good one… I shall come visit now 🙂

      1. as I get my scissors…

        1. Be careful, I almost took fingers off whilst franticly cutting… 😀

  2. I used the twitter online tool to see what would happen and it was fun. I like what you did and lots more magazines could end up getting used.

    1. I was very tempted to use that, I think I’ll definitely be experimenting with it soon, I’ll have a wander over to yours, I’m intrigued… and thank you, I’m quite happy to have found the technique 🙂

  3. Wow you did so well and I am super impressed. And I could read it too! Lol

    1. Thank you! It did take a few attempts with the camera, avoiding all those pesky reflections and shadows!

      1. hah yes i hate those

  4. Super and not like a ransom note at all 🙂 Plus I liked the fonts you chose, they have a lovely overall effect.

    1. Thank you. I think it must have been the mass of girly magazines that most of them came from… 😀
