It's overcast today, and I feel in tune to the weather. So I created a darker project than I usually do. I am having so much fun with my backgrounds from the Doll House and my images from Ike's Art. This is a mixed media canvas, done both digitally and with paper, ink and whatever happened to be lying on my craft table.
The image is Poe Bust from Ike's Art. I placed it digitally on a background paper by artist Marta Vaneck called Scene Papers #03. I cut out the window and added a piece of some Tim Hotlz collage paper. I inked and embossed the extra raven from a set from QKD. The quote is of course from the poem The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. Other patterned papers used are from Close to my Heart.I painted the foam core base a fire engine red and wiped gently for a textured look, although my papers almost covered it all up!
I sprinkled on some flowers, jewels, bow and brad, and was compelled to add a feather (from a stranger, tap-tap-tapping on my own window sill, perhaps?).
My craftiness knows very few bounds. I like to make cards, layouts and ATCs, and dabble in water colors and mixed media and altered art. In celebration of my Birthday Blowout Blog Candy games, I'd like to ask you today:
What do you dabble in? What have you not tried yet but would like to? Leave me a comment about your craftiness for today's prize package. And as always, have fun crafting!
