This week we challenged our Artist in Residence to draw inspiration from words. Their favorite poet, poem, or special notion. Words have the power to warm hearts and change the world. What words inspire you?
When you’re at a loss for words, the best inspiration is someone else’s. This bookmark uses a technique popular in altered books and a favorite of artists like Austin Kleon: found poetry. In found poetry you pick out the words you want and cover everything else, leaving only your message behind. You can do this with books, magazines, newspapers—even junk mail—but for this bookmark the narrow column of a newspaper or magazine article is just the right size.
