QUOTH THE RAVEN - QUEST #48....MATERIAL THINGS


Hi Peeps,
Here I am with my creation this month for our latest Quest over at QUOTH THE RAVEN.Our challenge theme this month is "MATERIAL THINGS", so we want you to create a POE inspired piece which must include some material/fabric.
You can make anything you like as long as it has this and is obviously connected in some way to EDGAR ALLAN POE, since that what our Blog is all about :-D

I have finally finished converting my mobile phone instruction book I have been upcycling for a while now, and this piece covered the last two pages.

Here it is....

FRONT COVER 




I chose to illustrate ELEONORA by Edgar Allan POE and have used one of my images from IKEsART...'THOUGHTS' and my skellie hand.





I used a piece of multi colour canvas for the backing of both pages.
I added my image - I left her in monotone hues.




Then I cut a strip of brown satin and sewed down the middle whilst pleating it. I also made roses from the same fabric.




I finished off with a quote from the story...  " She had seen that the finger of Death was upon her bosom -  that, like the ephemeron *, she had been made perfect in loveliness only to die".  

nounplural ephemera 
 [ih-fem-er-uh(Show IPA), ephemerons.
1.
anything short-lived or ephemeral.
2.
ephemera, items designed to be useful or important for only a short time, especially pamphlets, notices, tickets, etc.
 If you would like to read the works of EDGAR ALLAN POE and this story, then click HERE.
