Poe Journal Page

Greetings! Today I have an art journal page to share with you. I was inspired by Rick St. Dennis' image of Edgar Allan Poe. Further inspired by the latest Haunted Design House challenge of "The Poetry and Prose of Poe, Romantic or Lunatic?" Nevermore is a favorite of mine, of course, so I chose to work with that.

Rick's image was the starting point of the piece, and I colored him with my alcohol markers and a couple watercolor markers. Then I printed out the first and last stanza of the poem, inked the hell out of them, and started to play with the Quoth the Raven set from Smeared Ink. How could I make this page without that set?

Isn't the likeness to Poe incredible? Rick did an amazing job with this image. I know I will be using it quite a bit.

I so enjoyed layering all of the background images. And I must say, that London Fog Memento ink is a new favorite of mine. I used that ink for the mesh stamp. I can say I am really falling in love with art journaling. I think when I get a few supplies, like those Dylusional Sprays that are practically taking over the craft world, my journals will get even more fun. But the place that I am at right now makes me happy. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
