This custom collage was made for a friend to give as a gift to someone who loves Poe as much as I do.

Here’s some details on how I made it:

-paint a 5″ x 7″ canvas board with gray paint,

-tear a page from a vintage book and adhere on canvas using gel medium

-print vintage clip art image of Poe on cardstock and die cut, layer scallop die cut behind and adhere to canvas

-stamp raven on book page scrap, cut out and adhere

-wrap bottom of canvas with black mesh ribbon and layer on crumped and inked crepe paper

-on a metal label embellishment stamp “nevermore” with Staz-On ink, adhere over ribbon and crepe paper

-glue pen nib to metal embellishment

-on back of large domino stamp skeletons with Staz-On ink, color sides of domino with black Sharpie marker, adhere to canvas

- adhere game tiles that spell “POE” to canvas

Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!

I recently found an amazing antique book from 1912 about famous poets and I cut out some text from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” for a soldered charm on this mixed media necklace. I also added a book and pen nib charm too.

I recently made several domino charms and charm necklaces for Fall and Halloween. Each domino is colored with ink and stamped with an image and then soldered around the edges.

This first one is all about one of my favorite poets Edgar Allan Poe, the round charm is a vintage wooden game piece and there is also a metal ink pen nib.

I love this cool owl image, I added another game piece with the word “who”

This one is a play on the term “skeleton key”, dancing skeletons on the domino, a metal key and skull bead

For this collage I used the raven and skull stamp from Inkadinkado on vintage book paper, it’s embellished with a binder clip and ink pen nib that’s dripping ink. The bottom border is black mesh ribbon, crepe paper and an embossed metal plate that says “nevermore”. I tied some hemp string with a hand and heart charm around the plate. I almost didn’t want to sell it I love it so much but I’ve listed it in my Etsy shop :)
