Crusade nr 43 - Text messaging

I had no text to use for the page. I usually clip text for its meaning and not for the design value of the font. So I went on a pre-crusade hunting in the recycling. Then, I decided to use the grid layout from a previous crusade. I painted the background black and white, then glued the text and I ended up with this:

Not all the text "makes sense", but I guess some of it counts can count as "found poetry"...It was an interesting exercise, it got me to notice the design value of fonts. Now I have a designated envelope for font collection.
Thanks for visiting!
