A Poe Quote
So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now.
I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on.
"If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered"
I got some paints out, some spray mists too. I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag. I got messy, satisfyingly messy :)
The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's. When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste. I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them. They must be 40 years old but are still perfect. (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!)
I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's. I magicked a k from a P! Some letters are wonky but that's part of it.
Finished off with my black fine liner. An afternoon well spent.
As I came to write this post I noticed Ike's post... (How bizarre that this fits so well to 2 challenges.) so I will also link this up at Quoth the Raven. The page fits with the middle line of the tic tac toe board - Poe Poe Poe! I'm not familiar with QTR but I think it qualifies...
Thanks for stopping by :)
