Edgar Allen Poe Appreciation Day - New Make...


Let the Poe Show begin!
I've been planning to use this frame for a while. It's one of the Christmas projects...plywood cut to shape, burnt with the technique I have mentioned before and varnished.
So what better than use it to frame a Poe Canvas?
Step One...Spray canvas with walnut stain through a Clarity Stencil and leave to dry.

Step Two ...Add texture medium through a Creative Hands (Dubai) Stencil and added extra texture with a Lost Coast Designs Fern Background stamp  and leave to dry.
Step 3 - Spray with Perfect Pearls Mist in mandarin.
Steps 4 and 5 - Stamp with Smeared Ink rubber stamps - Poe and Nevermore - emphasise with Black marker and black paint. 
Add Sissix texture and raven dies cut in black tissue with Mod Podge lustre glue.
Step 6 - Place behind frame...

May get chance for a better picture later...

I will link this to Quoth the Raven #52 - Anything Poe
and Dream in Darkness Challenge
Happy Crafting!
