Halloween and I were not a natural fit, it took me some time as a stamper before I felt comfortable with Halloween, it was Oxford Impressions stamps which opened my mind and it is because of Oxford Impressions that I have a considerable amount of Halloween related stamps!
This Poe inspired assemblage shrine happens to be one of the pieces which appears in the latest issue of Somerset Studio. The actual shrine is from Calico Craft Parts, that does not include the spool, I added the spool with all stamps from Oxford Impressions Haunted set and is available in the U.K. from That’s Crafty.A quick photo of the shrine/assemblage in Somerset Studio.
I decided I wanted Poe set right at the back, adding to the sense of unease from the insects crawling towards and over him.
As the instructions are printed in Somerset Studio, I don’t want to include them here.
There is beautiful depth to play with on this shrine. I added the cobweb as a midway layer.
The spool was my own addition, painted with the stained and stamped calico bringing detail to the spool.
Thank you for your visit. I hope I am not swamping you with Halloween artwork!
