It's that time again! Time for the Smeared and Smudged member blog hop. Our hop will be on THURSDAY, August 23rd. at 9:00 am (PST)
The theme is POE-ETIC! Since we're celebrating the great Edgar Allan Poe this month, I thought it would be awesome for our members to create something using one of his poems! It can be a canvas, a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item, an art journal page, etc. Use your imaginations. Also, don't forget the S&S rule that is has to be stamped somewhere (digi stamps are fine) – we love when you use Smeared Ink Stamps, but it is NOT a requirement to participate.
I made two very similar digital pieces, but couldn't decide which I liked best. My inspiration came from the poem "Annabel Lee". This is my favorite poem by Poe and I had all of these grand ideas on how to bring the poem to life. Of course neither project turned out the way I wanted, but such is life! Maybe I will draw my own Annabel Lee scene and paint it one day...but that will be far in the future when I have a lot more time on my side!
Here they are. Which do you like best? You can click the images to enlarge the pics.
Thanks for stopping by! If I don't comment on Thursday, I will definitely be around on Friday to leave some love as that is my well-deserved day off this week! Cheers!
