In keeping with the season - here is my entry for the weekly on-line challenge at Mixed Media Monday. The theme this week is "moustache"! What better gent than Mr. Edgar Allan Poe himself. This is an altered journal done in a creepy Halloween theme.
Mr. Poe is on the inside cover. he sits ontop of somem vintage journal pages, some text from a european book, Czech or Polish - not Transylvanian - but it looks appropriate. bunch of scribbles add to the effect.
Here is the cover of the journal, titled appropriately Quoth the Raven. The image is from the book but that is a random spooky mansion. The whole cover is coated with a layer of melted beeswax. It gives an ethereal effect.
Here is the back cover - some sheet music with the right degree of sepia aging. The dictionary snippet has the listing for Vulture. A leaf-less foam tree finishes it off.
