Yesterday I reminded you of my Poe ATC box which I made last year -

Today I will start by showing you another favourite 'Poeject' (from 3 years ago)

Details of how I made this are as follows:

The frame is plywood cut to shape, burnt using a technique I have mentioned before and varnished.
For the 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...

But now back to my ATC box:

These two ATCs from inside the box feature Leigh's Poe Love and Distressed Splatter Heart
I foiled these and added them to marbled backgrounds, trimming the pieces as shown and adding Scattered Twigs Distress Ink.
I used a purple card as the ATC bases.

Today I added this ATC to the box. 
This is brown card followed by a scrap of Vintage DP from Fabscraps. I overstamped this using a Smeared Ink stamp and then added Poe (Tim Holtz ephemera).
I used Scattered Twigs Distress Ink around the edges.

I will add this ATC to the linky!

Happy Crafting!


  1. I love seeing your creative process!! What a fantastic frame, and the foil and dramatic heart on the ATCs is very eye catching.

  2. I love your sombre colors to match Poe character, brilliant.

  3. Fabulous Poe Love ATCs and frame too!
