Mixed Media Poetry #poeticdiversion

 Hello Friday, so good to see you! 

Have you seen the hashtag, #poeticdiversion?  It's a twitter space to share tweet-sized poems and poetic thoughts. Some of our friends are there regularly. #Poeticdiverson helps take the focus off stressful topics and onto something that's good, right, and poetic.

I've been collaging--a lot. Mixed media helps take my mind off of stressful things too. This week I graduated from greeting cards and bookmarks to a piece of art...just because #poeticdiversion. 

Mixed Media Poetry by Linda M.

Thank you to Ramona from Pleasures from the Page for hosting our round-up this week.

  2. Love that you found beautiful words & imagined those starry windows, Linda. I haven't done any of my word collages this week & they are such fun! Thanks for your inspiration!

  3. The words "scratch spell" symbolize what the art is speaking. I love that you moved to a larger surface to bring out your poetic diversion, Linda. The colors and collage font bring out the mood so beautifully. Love the ending-Star diamonds!

  4. What a lovely collage you created as a diversion and shared with us. I love the illustration in the lower right corner. Linda, your link is to a previous week. If you want to reenter your link with this week's link, I can delete the earlier one.

    1. The link I'm talking about is the one on Mr. Linky. Probably not a problem, since people know to click on your blog to get to your latest blog post.

  7. Linda, I like your poetic diversions and pursuit of creativeness in collage poetry. It not only provides a welcome distraction, it brings about discovery and something worthwhile. Love the poem and the vision of Moonlight Jazz Angels.

  13. Sorry I missed this. You are developing into quite the collage artist. I love this, the colors, the words, the tone...Ah!

  14. Golly how beautiful! I'm struck by the words but the big deal here for me is the overall design, the tones the arrangement the colors the background and contrast the TEXTURES! You should do an online workshop and get us to pay you to spend a coupla hours with you....
