SMEARED + SMUDGED AUGUST MEMBERS' BLOG HOP

Hello and welcome to our August Members' BLOG HOP: at SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM in association with Smeared Ink.
I hope you are enjoying what you are seeing so far.
If you came here from the fabbo Madelein's Blog, you are on the right track. If not - don't worry, I have the list further down so you can catch up :-) xx
We are working to a Theme this time - Edgar Allan POE.
I have used a Raven from SMEARED INK's POE set and have fussy cut him out 8 times. I also did this with a flipped image so that makes 16 layers in all. I stuck both halves together and then dipped him in my melting pot with UTEE. I then attached him to an earring fitting, added feathers, beads, chains and black thin ribbon and voila ! A Poe earring. He is a little bit heavy but I am prepared to suffer by the end of an evening -  where I will only wear one such earring when I 'Goth-up' :-) 



ACK !! I've just noticed that somewhere along the way I've managed to break off his foot !!!!!!  Dang ! Haven't a clue where it is now, so - HeyHo  :-(
So, here is your Blog Roll in case you get lost:
You are now off to the fabulous VEE's Bloggy..... have fun xx

Great idea on an earring I could see where it would be heavy. Maybe alter it into a pin or purse jewelry. I love it. Great work.
