Find more details here 

But, in this, my final post of this year's hop - I have a giveway for you...

How would you like my POE canvas?

For details of how I made it look here 
It is basically a 19 by 24 cm burnt plywood frame attached to a canvas.
If you would like to go in the draw to win this email me the answer to the question below

I am happy to mail overseas (I am in the UK) but please check that it would be allowed through your customs.

I have revised the question slightly, thanks to Val: 

The revised version of a poem Poe originally composed in the 1820s  was published in 1849, "A _____ Within a _____". What is the one word that goes in both blanks?

But now I have some new ATCoins to share... 

The top two started with 2.5 inch circles of embossed black card attached to strong card blanks.

I printed Ike's Poe Bust and Leigh's Poe Love on blue card and cut them out.
I added them and some Poe quotes printed on yellow and trimmed.

For the bottom three I started with brown card on the strong card blanks and matted them with circles of poured acrylic background.

I printed Ike's Poe Bust and Leigh's Poe Love on white card and cut them out.

Once again I added them and some Poe quotes printed on yellow and trimmed.

The middle one has a skeleton printed on acetate - I came across it this morning...

I will add these ATCoins to the linky!

Happy Crafting!


  1. What fun ATC Coins.. Love them all.. The colors and details are fabulous..

  2. I’m loving your POEtastic ATCoins, thank you for using my images on these & thank you for playing along again in this year’s Poe Appreciation blog hop! Hope to see you in February for My Dark Valentine Blog Hop ;0)

    Sigh, I wish I had a spare spot to display your fab Poe this another casualty of Australia not allowing wood in, I just saw your post about your canoe book case?

    1. It was a shame about the canoe bookcase. It was an antique canoe from India which had been converted into a set of shelves. The Australian customs may have dismissed it out of hand which would have been a waste of shipping and it was very big and heavy. Or they might have insisted on treatment etc causing more expenses. So we decided to sell it!

      The little canvas is another victim of packing up - but more that the removalists missed it. I found it on a shelf after they had gone!! I think my personal luggage will be bursting at the seams as it is...

      Anyway hope someone would like it...

  3. I love the first two and the acrylic poured backgrounds on the final three is spectacular! You have really inspired me once again on this blog hop! Safe travels ...

  4. You are amazing!!! In the middle of moving you are able to create so much! What a fantastic group of POE coins. I wish you much luck in your move.

  5. Those ATCoins are really gorgeous and inspiring too. Your poured acrylic backgrounds are fantastic too. Great works!

  6. Love your ATCoins! Fabulous frame, I would love to have it...I don’t know the answer to your question... Susan are your parents going to Aussie with you?
