Inspired by Poe...

I haven't done many small objects, but I am starting to do more and more and I am loving it!  The tiny piece below was inspired by Poe ...

The book was the hardest part to do, and that's only because i have never cut into a book before ... the spine doesn't slice as easy as the pages do ... but modifying books has always been something i have wanted to do ... and this is a start ...  I distressed the pages, covered the top with a bit of patterned paper and added a misted and inked grungeboard bracket .

The blood in the bottle was so easy to make ... its glossy accents mixed with a little alcohol ink.  Because i sealed the bottle, it should last a while, but sooner or later the air through the cork will harden it.

I'm in a Halloweenish mood!  I just finished a Halloween swap and i will post it as soon as I receive my swap items.

want your twine to twist ... just wrap it around a dowel, or pencil or chopstick ... get it a little wet and air dry it over night ... you can do this with ribbon as well!

Sealing wax rocks ... i used both black and red to add little globs of stuff to the table ...  thanks so much for stopping by!

Hi Jo. I just saw your sweet album that you sent another the other Jo over at LazyonLoblolly. It's so cute I just had to come see who made it and I'm glad I did. Now I can follow you and see what new items you come up with. And anyone who has a turquoise/aqua blog I know has to be special.

I love your creative Poe piece! It really is a work of art.

I look forward to following you and getting to know you better.

Hugs...Tracy :)
