For this week's Journal52 challenge, the goal was to create found poetry. So this Found Poetry Fairy is the result of a book page that I received from another group member.
I tore the book page first and when I'd finished it looked like the bottom of a dress to me. So I decided I'd turn it into a fairy wearing a dress. The goal of found poetry is to block out text on a page and leave only the words you want, creating a sort of poem. The words I left read,
in a moment that took up far too much of the space, love, she noticed, is the distant ocean of silence.
I used acrylic paints for this and some stenciling. I also spritzed it at the end with some glimmer mist so that it has a sort of shimmer to it, though you can't really see that in the photo. This was challenging, but fun.
