8th annual Poe Appreciation Blog Hop - Day 1



This is Leigh's 8th Annual Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop.

Find more details here 

My plan is to show something old and something new each day... but as I am away on holiday for a few days this might be a little difficult!

Anyway this is my little Poe book that I made last year using Leigh's Poe Book .

I cut the pieces with my Cricut, stuck them together to make the three pages and then started embellishing with pockets and stamped images. I used images and designs from
from Raiders of the Lost Art and the Poe Gothic Junk Journal pagesGecko Galz and old Smeared Ink real rubber. I added pockets to hold ATCs and a postcard...

This postcard has an image from Gecko Galz on this side.

and Gecko Galz and The Raiders of the lost Art on the other.

For today's new project I am sharing a junk journal page made on a piece of corrugated card. I added various collage layers to give some texture, then colour including gold using my gelli plate. I completed this before coming away.

I added images from Gecko Galz to complete the page.

The gothic image is the freebie from Gecko Galz Gothic Monthly Challenge

I will add this to the Linky

Happy Crafting!
