And Finally...

My closing tribute to the Genius that 
was and is....
Edgar Allan Poe


Well one could hardly finish without a tribute 
in words :D 
and a few last "past" makes...
 a knitted Raven
 My hand embroidered Art Apron....

and a look through the Art journal I was making 
(must get round to finishing) inspired by a
Rock classics calendar ...each page altered to
represent a quote from 
E.A Poe XXX










Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did

All you need is Love...


Sponsored by 

*using Love Strung Ellie*

I really enjoyed colour matching this image to
the papers  "Blooming Lovely" from
The Paper Boutique (which I got for 2.99 as a club members gift).
 As you can see...my work desk is much
tidier than usual lol
 and she posed so beautifully on my ribbon box :D
The little tag was from a fat quarter pack...
 "waste not want not "
*except I totally want everything crafty ever*
Enjoy :D XXX

Birthday POE stcards

HOW DID I NEARLY MISS THIS!!!!!

Thank goodness the ladies at 
are on the case!

So after a manic morning I now have 
4 POEstcards :D

 I(not surprisingly) have several collections of 
Poe related digi images....
I used My Craft Studio to create 4 collage pieces
 The kit includes background papers, so I printed one
 of those off and used it to cover my postcard blanks.
 Cut out and glued...
 before adding some verdigris and black embossing powder
around the edges.
 A quick blast of satin varnish and a few 
black peel offs and done :D
The quotes are also from the digi kit...
 "I became insane with long intervals of horrible Sanity"
 "I felt I breathed an atmosphere of Sorrow"
 " We loved with a love that was more than Love"
" And this maiden she lived with no other thought
than to love and be loved by me"
