The End: A Free-Flow Poem with Artwork

Updated on April 23, 2012

Still experimenting with words and art. This is what I call "book page art". That might actually be a 'thing', but I didn't look it up!

Here's how I did this one:

  1. Rip out a page from a boring old book. I bought mine at The Dollar Tree. You could also sneak pages from a friend's book, but I doubt you'd be friends after that. Especially if it's from The Hunger Games!
  2. Look for words that tell a story. Space them so they are not all bunched up. Give them a chance to flow.
  3. Cover the words you are keeping with bits of Post-It notes. Just the sticky part!
  4. Paint, draw, splatter...etc. to cover words you are not keeping. I used Sharpie for this one.
  5. After paint is dry, remove Post-It notes with fingernails or tweezers.
  6. The end!

      Very Interesting poem here, its a differing technique then mine, but looks kind of like a Haiku poem, nonetheless its very creative, and I also liked your intro, nicely written. Congratulations on your 10,000 views accolade achievement and like I said this is also my day of sharing my very own 20,000 achievement.

      Awesome times on hubpages, and its nice to have met you digitally for sure, see you in many more of your hubs. Voted up! and getting shared everywhere I can.

      There is a similar process called altered books which people here offer workshops for.
