"and this maiden
with no other thought
than to love
and be loved
Been there, done that. Quite a lovely way to pass the time.
I've had this one in my head for months but just couldn't quite pull it together. Poe and Annabel Lee are from The Octopode Factory. The come individually or as a Set of 8 Poe images. The Lighthouse is from Tiddly Inks. I'd always planned to go monochromatic but achieving the right mood escaped me until I saw the February Junk Funk challenge on the Smeared and Smudged Forum. Used dryer sheets! Of course. I've got wads of those laying around so I spritzed and inked and ripped and taped (mostly around the back) until I'd set up a proper fog. WooHoo!
I've also been trying to enter the Octopode Factory Friday Challenge with Octopode images for months but my time always got away from me. This fortnight is Glitter. Perfect! After coloring Annabel Lee with Copics, I covered her with a Be Creative Tape sheet and sprinkled on Glitter Ritz transparent microfine glitter in cool highlight. Even though I'd colored first, this stuff is so fine that you can actually stamp and color over it without damaging your marker nibs and gave Annabel the ghostly ethereal look I was after. Cool!
