This is the same wall hanger, but with the wings glitter smudged on the third and fourth photos, still can't decide which way I like it best though.
Anyhow, I have used the wonderful collab that I won at Quoth the Raven (from Smeared Ink) to create something to adorn my walls. I even learnt how to make the background to the images transparent. I felt however that with Poe behind the bars, it was more apt, as a lot of his literacy deals with sorrow and his feelings of inadequacy. He had a sad life full of high mountains and deep troughs and a constant desire to get his poetry published in the manner in which he chose and not that of others.
The rose petals (for love) are from my garden, pressed last year. The pearls I felt were perfect for the era in which he lived. The black glitter was for the gothism of his work, the dark places he visits in his subconscious. I did actually use some pink/red inks on the background area, but the flash has all but bleached them away. Hope you like this, it is a bitty different for me, but I did enjoy myself and that is of course why we create.
I am entering this into Quoth the Raven's 2nd Challenge which is to create a piece of artwork using his own image.
Thanks for looking
