    Edgar Allan Poe artwork plus sale!

    Edgar Allan Poe Tunnel Shadow Box by Design Team Member Susan Killam!

    I sooo love this little Poe shadowbox! Susan used small stacks of chipboard to provide depth between the layers of the 4×4 Arch Tunnel Book (there’s step-by-step photos on her blog post… and see the wider photo below for a work-in-progress that shows the depth).

    And I’m happy to see another Halloween project (there are some dark prints in the Banner Year 6×6 Paper Pad, also in this month’s kit, along with the 4×4 tunnel book). There’s lots of different prints in that paper set, from florals to polka dots to sheet music (and a dark starry night, too).

    Ok… on to text from Susan’s blog post:

    The kit comes with great seasonal papers and timely sunflowers, but my 4×4 Arch Tunnel Book is a little darker with an Edgar Allan Poe theme. Hey, I’m a Baltimore girl and I can’t pass up a Poe project opportunity!

    The design team will show you different ways to use the tunnel. I made mine into a shadow box.

    To begin, I chose the center element first. The photo below shows how I rigged it up so I could see the chipboard layers and plan the elements. (Note to self: put wee lights in the next tunnel book.)

    There are so many great motifs throughout Poe’s writing. Here I’ve included a raven, heart, cask, skull, and, of course, Lenore, all from Alpha Stamps collage sheets. There’s also a pendulum, eyes, premature burial, and doubles. Oh… if only I’d used the 6×6 Arch Tunnel Book!

    Hey, I’m ready to encourage Susan to make another tunnel book! :)

    Read more and see more photos in Susan’s blog post; plus here’s her full supply list. And don’t forget to come back to see the new goodies and that POE sale!

     
    New & Back in Stock Goodies: from Mulberry Paper Flowers to Halloween!

    Pretty much everything in this group could be used in a Poe project, too!

     
    EVERYTHING Poe or with BLACK in the Title ON SALE!

    In honor of Susan’s artwork (and just cuz it’s that time of year)! This is a 30% off sale. However, anything on clearance in this big group is marked down to 50% off!

    Note: As the word “black” is contained in lots of other words/phrases (like “blackbird” to “black and white”) this is a BIG GROUP: over 130 options! Tons of categories: from scrapbook paper to acrylic laser cuts. And it includes those 3 collage sheets (and the black cats) shown below, also used by Susan in her project!

    The sale ends at midnight on MONDAY night, August 19th! Click: FLASH SALE to see everything!
