Welcome to SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges in October.
I imagined it was E.A. Poe's book telling his poem about the raven
coming and knocking on his door. His love for the mysterious and macabre,
E.A. Poe has always sent icings through my entire body,
when I read his short stories.
My cardboard book is 10x15 cm.
I've really been playing around with lots of paste and crackle paint,
using my spatula and my fingers to create layers and depth.
In some places I have also used sandpaper
I have used: DecoArt medium Crackle paste, Modeling paste. Crakle paint.
DecoArt medium Fluid Acrylics Translucent White,
Translucent Yellow iron oxide,
Cerulean blue, Titan buff, Quinacridone Gold,
Quinacridone burnt orange and Paynes grey.
DecoArt medium Antiquing cream Carbon black.

Thin metal and letter punch for metal used for the front. Old book paper, stamps,
jet ink printer used for Poe's photo, pen, cardboard book, acetate and rubons.
Transfer of photos to a prepared acrylic background.
Drawn with black charcoal pencil, Quote: Edgar Allan Poe.
The inspiration I got from a course at Wanderlust with Kat Kerr.
It was hard to photograph and I hope you, my good reader can get a small
impression of how my layers sit in the book.
I send a big October greeting to all of you and hope to see you at
