Getting Eerie with Edgar

The entire month of October prompt is October and Halloween at Art With No Boundaries.  The dt work displayed at their blog is down right eerie.  Got me in the mood to make what I consider the ultimate eerie in Halloween art--Edgar Allan Poe.


The image of Poe and the bird with Poe's words are both from the Gecko Galz collage sheet, Poe.
So I'm also entering this ATC at the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Yahoo Group Ephemera Emporium Halloween challenge due October 7.  Lots of challenges here so please join in.

This ATC will head to the Unruly Paper Arts Yahoo Group for their Eerie ATC swap.  The swap sign up is closed, but please consider joining our group.  Something is always happening  there.....

Materials used:
background ATC paper: Memory Box Blackbird 6x6 collection
Tim Holtz Alterations Movers & Shapers Sizzix die Artful Dwellings:  I took the arch shape and turned it into a tombstone, using thick mulberry paper for texture and gesso mixed with a bit of black paint to create a gray color.
Gecko Galz Poe collage sheet.  Punched one inch circle around Poe photo.  Glued on top the rim of a circle tag.   Fussy cut raven and adhered with foam dot.
Martha Stewart fence punch
Tim Hotz Ideaology metal pen nib

This atc is amazing...so cool. I love everything about it from the awesome tombstone to the Poe tag with the metal rim to the raven on the fence. And that pen nib is just clever for a Poe inspired project. Thanks so much for joining us at Art With No Boundaries and for the kind words in your post. I'm off to explore your blog.
