This is week 2 of the Poememes weekly challenge. This week’s prompt is texture and verse. You can paint it, sketch it, take a photo of texture, make a collage of textures etc. Then write a one verse poem. The poem can be a thought, observation, or related to the texture you created. Anything at all.

Lately, I’ve using masking tape and bubble wrap for my textures. Here are a few of my own pieces:
I took a photo of my masking tape painted journal page and then typed the verse in my pixlr express app. Notice how the green font seems to look like an embroidered sampler?!
I wrote a thought about my anticipation for spring: “I yearn for green pastures on a warm spring day.”
My second piece:
For this piece I used bubble wrap and broken china distress paint from Tim Holtz. This piece became a hybrid piece two because I took a photo of my bubble wrap stamped paper and then added the text later. I was originally going to type the verse and then printed onto the blue textured paper but the paper was too thick.
