The Raven

It is Edgar Allan Poe month at Gingersnap Creations ....
What would such a month be without The Raven?
I created an altered book page with the little help of a collage sheet by Plush Possum Studio and Artistic Outpost stamps. The text page is printed on slightly textured off-white paper while Poe's image is printed on transparency and then layered onto the text page. For one of the ravens at the top and the one in the middle I did some fussy cutting. The transparency is attached by staples and ravens. The eye ring around Poe's eye is a l eftover from some inking experiment! The edges of the text page and the transparency are distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink. ..... Oh, and of course, the page is signed by Poe ... how cool is this? (lol)

Check out the Gingersnap blog for the current Random Redhead challenge. You will see some absolutely brilliant raven creations. Petra.
