Read starting with “Happy one minute” and continue down the left side of the screen, then move to the right and move down that side to read the poem how I originally intended it. Something that made me giggle while I was making this is that I accidentally matched the theme of the “joy of painting” in that I had my own little happy accident. The way I wanted to lay the poem out also happened to work reading it backward! Right side down, then left side down ended up creating another poem about the same topic – just with a different feel due to introductions, etc.
Pretty sure it’s obvious what drove me to create this – so I won’t dive into that one too much… for both of our sakes.
All you need to be able to complete this is some photo editing software and a poem of your choice. I ripped the background of this from an old nightcore music video that I used to watch when I was around 10-11 and then put my poem on top of it. Very cringy Tumblr teen – I know… I know. This was actually very fun for me to make though – I remembered more about photoshop than I thought I would and it was nice to see myself getting lost in making the little details line up.
This was really fun and I highly recommend giving this a try! It allows you to add even more emotion and emphasis to one of your works of writing without having to create a whole new piece.
