It's Jess back with some more Halloween fun for you. Today I bring you a little bit of Poe.
Take a brown paper sack and crumple it up. I crumpled and uncrumpled mine several times to get the wrinkles the way I liked them. I glued the bag to the Faux Book Box using Distress Collage Medium. Once the collage medium was dry I used Distress Stains to color the paper. I kept adding and wiping away the stain until I was happy with the color.
Next I embossed a couple Stackable Labels and glued them to the cover of the book.
Printers Ornament Corners were added to the spine.
I added a little sticker to the side.
The inside of the box is covered with a paper that looks like weathered wood and the edges are embossed.
A faux pocket watch has a picture of Poe inside. I colored the edge with alcohol inks. Silk sari ribbon was dyed using Distress Stains and Alcohol Inks.
The heart was painted a bright red mixed with some umber. Once the paint was dry I added a layer of crackle medium. When the medium started to dry I heated it up. This caused lots of bubbling. I added another layer of paint and the dripped alcohol ink on it too.
I added the heart to the box using a bit of wire. The heart hangs in there freely so it bumps against the box. Very appropriate for the Tell Tale Heart.
