Gelli Plate and Haiku

I am in the middle of creating a book.  The pages are pages that I cut out of another book I picked up at Goodwill.  I cut the pages out and printed them with my Gelli Plate.  Then I created Haiku poems from phrases I cut out of books and magazines.  Haiku is 3 a line poem with the first line being 5 syllables, the second has 7 syllables, and the last contains 5 syllables.  I will do a bit more collage work on each before I bind them into a book.  Here are a few examples of my poems.

This one is one of my favorites.  I am an introvert and when I am at a large gathering, this is what it feels like to me.


  1. Inspirational. I've just started a tiny little book and I want to fill it with poems too.

  2. I can relate to the last one, which is probably why it's my favourite. They're all stunning and I love the idea of the Haiku. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Wow, love these! I just popped over from the Gelli Arts Facebook page and I'm so glad i did! I am your newest follower :)
