White Out Poetry

So, this is what I’m into right now at this very moment in time… White Out Poetry.

Totally inspired by Lynn Whipple, creative adventurer extraordinaire and teacher of  WordPlay Painting. Take this workshop… it will expand your world!




I want to dash off to the used book shop and buy up all the old, unwanted books so that I can create these quirky, silly, fun poems all day long.

Try it. You’ll like it.

Happy white out writing!

  1. Love your White Out Poetry series! I believe the predecessor of this “found poetry” technique is Tom Phillips, who in 1966 started his project, ultimately titled “A Humument”. http://www.tomphillips.co.uk Check it out 🙂

    • Thank you, thank you, thank you AlyZen Moonshadow!!! I enjoy learning about “new to me” artists! I just checked out the link you shared and now I am a fan of Tom Phillips work! He’s a modern day renaissance man!

      • You’re most welcome, Rachel. In my day I tried following in Tom Phillips’ footsteps, but found I didn’t have his level of motivation and determination. I only ever did 3 altered book pages before my butterfly brain fluttered on to other projects 😄. I hope you enjoy creating your White Out Poetry, they look really wonderful! 👍
