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 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
This tiny pumpkin charm also has a little leaf bead on it
and last but not least Ichabod better beware, the headless horseman is riding…..
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
I’m listing some new domino charm jewelry in my Etsy shop this week. And right now I’m working on lots of great new collage art Halloween soldered glass pendants. There are already some in the shop but I’ll listing a lot more in the next week or so, so be sure to check back
I love this Poe charm, great for Halloween or anyone who loves to read.
And of course Alice is always one of my faves. In addition to the domino charm there are also wooden game tiles with vintage text.
This one is nice and creepy for Halloween, the headless horseman. “Ichabod………..”
And this cute one has scrabble tiles that spell out “BOO” and a cute ghost shaped jingle bell.
Wow, where has August gone?? I’ve been so busy and I’ve really neglected my blog, sorry!
This week I was a soldering fool and made a ton of new pendants, I’ll be posting them here and for sale in my Etsy shop ( http://www.PisforPaper.etsy.com ) over the next week or so. I wanted to get a little early start on Halloween so alot of them are for my favorite holiday, Halloween!
I’ve been continuing to cut up the fabulous vintage dictionary I got awhile ago and here are a few pendants with some of the wonderful illustrations.
This is very Poe inspired, plus I have a thing for ravens and crows. The back includes the definition for “nevermore”
Really pretty owl illustration
and a funny one, a concertina with the words “I heart Polka” added
