Here I am with my creation for this month's Quest #33 over at QUOTH THE RAVEN. Our theme is "A Bunch of POEsies" and we are looking for flowers on your creation BUT it still has to be connected to the Master - Edgar Allan POE, coz that's what we're all about right ?! :-D
Here is my piece - a book cover that I shall be making more creations to go inside... eventually LoL
I have called it "The Book of My Mind's Eye"..... not really sure why but that was an idea I woke up with and here it is. !!
I covered some thick cardboard with kitchen roll and squidged it all up to get texture and then put Gesso on it. Then I used different inks and dies splurged on it to make it brown. I also used a sort of paste stuff called 'PRECIOUS METALS' Bronze that the wonderful BD sent me as a gift :-) LUV this stuff.
The eye was made with half a styrofoam ball and more kitchen paper for the lids. The veins were done with tiny pieces of red feather. Eyelashes are made from a brown feather. I then stuck it to some embossed card and made a ripped edge.
The flowers were made with my new STAMPIN' UP punch and stamps set called 'Flower Shop'. I then coated them with some nail varnish that I don't like on my nails coz it takes foreva to dry !!! When you move it in the light it changes hue slightly - sorry that doesn't work on a photo !! LoL It's pinky/purple one way, or blue/green, or a sort of yellowy hue :-)
Hingey things and swirls from stash box.
I am going to enter into the SoSS Challenge - C is for CRAP... coz I have no idea why I bought a sheet of stick on hinges and locks that don't even look like metal AND they don't stick properly and that awful nail varnish (and you know... I found 2 pots of the same darnstuff !!!) hahahaha LoL
OK - that's it for now I think.
We are a little short staffed at QTR this month so BLACK DRAGON will be posting her creation a bit later on. :-D
