A new chapter of black out poetry begins! As I continue to explore this medium, I’m trying out different styles of obscuring text including line patterns and rubber stamping. In addition, I’m using new source material – a classic YA novel. I found A Separate Peace by John Knowles on the library discard shelf. It’s clearly seen better days and I think its about time this battered edition was reinvented into a beautiful collection of found art.



It’s been 115° for the last week, so I figured this was a good one to get Round 2 rolling.

  1. I love this so much !!! You are so creative ! This is just such a unique idea !! I haven’t tried but the one black out poetry. Maybe with all you’ve done we should buy you sharpie markers for Christmas.


    • I have plenty of Sharpies! 🙂 I’m working on trying some different mediums to “black out,” as well. Things like gel pens, crayons, pastels, paint, etc. Some pieces are turning out great, others not so much. But I love the process of experimenting.
