Now I know he was a little bit on the kooky crazy side, but he wrote some wonderful stuff.... if you fancy a little taster then go HERE. Some tales are a little macabre but he also has gorgeous poems and we use his works to create pieces over at our QTR site. It's not all dark and gory - because his work is so varied we can do floral/pretty pretty too so please don't be afraid to come over and have a look and say Hi :-) We are almost at our 100 Followers goal too, so there will be some Candy on offer when we get there :-D
So now, onto my piece for this Quest... I have made for you a Mini Book Charm.
This little beastie is only 2" x 2.5" and was made following a Tutorial over at Gauche Alchemy.
I used some card from a cereal box and the paper inside the book is my "Poe Paper Freebie", which is available free in my SHOP. The DP I used for the pages is 'Absolution Deferred' by Crafty Chaos (Shop no longer operating). I made a little Cameo of The Master and used Glossy Accents on the top to look like glass. I inked all the edges with black ink and then added a Tim Holtz keyring hangy thingy :-) Some lace and a bit of sparkly thread to close and Voila !!!
The only thing that bugged me was that I didn't have any of those little proper 'eyelet' thingies so I had to use a different thing with little spikies on it. It works OK from outside but inside it doesn't have a rim so don't look so good. :-( Maybe I will have to invest in some eyelets !!! hee hee
OK - I'm off now. I hope you will come over to QUOTH THE RAVEN and see us........................... there SEE... I told you it wasn't all scary didn't I ???!!!
