We Grow: A Free-Flow Poem with Artwork

Updated on April 22, 2012

This is just an experiment I did yesterday. First attempt and I think it turned out pretty good.

The process is pretty simple:

  1. Rip out a page from a book. I cringed at this part even though I bought a book at the Dollar Tree specifically for this! I just hate destroying books!
  2. Read through the page and see if anything jumps out at ya!
  3. Take bits of Post-It notes, make sure it's the sticky part, and place over the words you want to keep.
  4. Paint, splatter, sketch...etc. on the page. I used acrylic paint on this one. I like acrylic because of the easy cleanup and quick drying time!
  5. Once the page is dry enough, take tweezers and peel away the Post-It.
  6. Stand back and smile at your awesomeness!

our world is now changing

we experience demand.
