I have been doing this for a while now. It’s a new form of art where you piece together a group of words to create your own poem. It’s almost like magnetic poetry, but what’s harder with this one is that the words have to be arranged from top to bottom (or bottom to top) for your line to make sense.
Here are some of my work:
I have already been doing blackouts for a while now. It’s my sort of therapy from the humdrum of my everyday life. There was one time when I ran out of black markers and then I thought, why not just cut the words out and pop them out? And that was how I started doing pop-outs.
Unlike blackouts, pop-outs involve more effort and patience as you couldn’t use multiple words or phrases in one line with spaces in between (spaces that you’re not going to use). I’ll do more of this soon. Ciao!
