Tuesday Tips and Techniques: Make Poetry Tiles!

Have you ever played with poetry tiles or magnetic poetry before?  I think it's both fun and thought provoking to arrange and re-arrange these little word tiles into poetry.  There are several sources of online poetry tiles to explore, but why not make your own to incorporate into a journal page?

I created my tiles in  the Paint program by first making the little "tiles".  Then I entered the text, and lastly, I filled in the background with a light gray to further isolate the tiles.   I took my laptop out on the deck and randomly typed words that came to me as I abandoned all my senses to the beautiful afternoon.

To get you started on your own poetry tiles, I'm offering my set for you to download and use as you would like!  I printed my words as two 5" x 7" sizes for my 4" x 5" journal.  If you're using an 8" x 10" or larger journal, I suggest printing them out as a full page.  Don't see a word you would like to use?  Make some of your own tiles to add to them!  It doesn't matter if the font or size is different - it will just make it more interesting.

I hope you're having a fabulous day, and I hope the promise of spring is blooming among your flowers too!  If you create a page using these tiles, be sure to share a link to your work in the comments section of this post.  We would all love to see what you do with them!

  9. The best place to learn mandarin Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin Chinese online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! It's a pleasure sharing the creative world of art journaling with you. I love hearing from you, so comments and questions are always welcome.
