My good friend Kay is very keen on Edgar Allan Poe and is part of the DT of the Challenge blog Quoth the Raven Nevermore. I quite like the idea of Poe and thought it would be fun to play along this month. The theme is "Dream on". I made an art journal.
I glued a piece of pattern paper in my journal after I coloured the edge of the page black with a Copic Marker. This forms a nice border around the page. I used pattern paper for the background that I distressed with Fresco Paint. I used Sage, which is a grey-green colour. I also put some of this paint on the black border. Next I stamped Poe. He is a rubber stamp from Carmen's Verandah which is sold by Lost Coast Designs. I coloured him with Copic Markers.
I adhered him to some book text and tore around him. I also put some of the Sage paint around the torn edge. The sentiment is a quote by Poe and I typed it on my old trusty typewriter on the edge of the same book text.
It says :
'Deep into that darkness
peering, long I stood there,
wondering, fearing, doubting,
dreaming dreams no mortal
ever dared to dream before'
I also rubbed some Sage paint around these strips. After glueing them to the page I doodled around them with a black pen.
That was it !
Thank you for stopping by !
