    Found Poetry, Open Themed atcs!


    Found poetry---because it's fun! Open theme, because why not? Create an atc, then peruse any text source (book, newspaper, whatever) & clip out words to create & add poetry to your art!

    Important stuff & thangs:
    •Atc (2.5"x3.5") format.
    •Best work only*
    •Originals only, no prints
    •P&P and MMA welcome, just stick to what you're juried for!

    Soooooo, I'm trying to figure out how I'd do this without going all MMA on it when I'm juried in at P&P! How do I go about getting accepted as MMA?

    Hmmm...looking at my stuff, I've only ever done one or two things in MMA; makes it hard to get juried in! lol

    You don't need to be MMA for this, WEL. The added text only accounts for a small bit of your card, so us P&P folks are safe.

    I will try to get some examples up asap for everyone.

    Is it OK to use atcs that we have posted here or other site? I have some that would like some words added!

    I did some research on Found Poetry art. It's more interesting than I initially thought and I already loved it. I'm trying to get my 15 yr old introverted nephew into art so the first challenge I made and sent to him is this theme. He likes what I mailed to him but I don't know if I'll ever get any back. LOL

    I don't see why not, Juanita Rojas!

    & Angie, that's such an awesome way to introduce someone to art! He's a lucky guy to have an aunt like you!
