Poe Appreciation Day Blog Hop: Tag Book

Please go HERE to find all the info on how your blog and project can join in!

This post is part of a blog hop and you can find all the details at the end of the post.

Awhile back, I made a tag book dedicated to Poe's short stories. I had plans for another one about his poems. I'm finally getting back to that idea.
So here's the beginnings of it and I hope to share it in it's completion in Part 2 over the coming weekend. In time to close out this fabulous blog hop.



Poems:  The first two tags of the "book". My cover is Poe's portrait with some buttons and liquid pearls. I haven't added anything to the back of this tag but I think I may write in a quote.



The Raven:  This tag is dedicated to the masterful work called, "The Raven". The bird is from Blog Hop sponsor Lost Coast Designs and is one of my favorite images to pair with Poe. I embossed it in silver on black cardstock. The bird was added to a stenciled tag. The faint pair of eyes is a stamp I've had in my stash for a long time...some of the first unmounted rubber stamps I owned. (I got them at a stamp show and think they were LCD but am not sure.)


I wanted to make something "different" for the Raven. I wanted it to be more airy and less dark but still subdued and solemn. I rather like the way it turned out.

The featured post at the right is the tag book I made of Poe's Short stories. Click on it to see that post.

Please check out the rest of the blog hop, too, for plenty of Poe.
