Another junk journal spread.

  I wanted to share what I was doing with my pages of upcycled cardboard with my friends at the UK Stampers Network. So I used this spread ...

8th annual Poe Appreciation Blog Hop - Day 5



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

Sign up not required...

simply join the hop at any time before 5 to midnight PST on January 23 to join the fun!

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. 

Yesterday I reminded you of my Poe ATC box which I made last year - on the top of this is one of Ike's images (sadly Ike is no longer with us - we miss her).

Today I will start by showing you another old favourite 'Poeject'.

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.

Today  I am sharing four more ATCs using mainly images from Gecko Galz. However this first one has an image I usually use for Bah humbug makes (old image from Delicious Doodles) but I thought it was Poe-like.  It is printed small, coloured with markers and cut out.

I will add these to the Linky

Happy Crafting!
