Blackout Poetry

Warning: I am not an artist and I am not a poet!

But I like doing artsy things and I love books! I have been seeing tons of blackout poetry examples on Pinterest and they look really cool! So I decided to give it a try!


I am pretty proud of the results!!! Here are the close ups:

This is my overall favorite!



This was the first one I tried:





This one is my favorite poem


This one was a close second for my favorite!


The book I took the pages from was about war, so that is why a lot of my poems ended up being darker.Β  The words I had to choose from weren’t particularly happy.

What do you think of my Blackout Poetry? Which is your favorite? Have you tried it before?


  1. They’re great – I love the way you’ve filled the pages. I have heard of this before on another blog I follow – it’s really simple and yet effective. I like the idea of finding something, a tiny story, hidden within the pages of another story.
