Today is Day One of SmudgeFest. The challenge for today was called Monday Mash Up. You were given a fun list of elements to work into your creation. So much fun!
|Edgar Allan Poe Dangle|

I decided to try something new. I created a hanging dangle from paper and a cereal box for the challenge. I used the Edgar Allan Poe and raven wings digital stamps from Smeared Ink to do my project. They were both from the Quoth the Raven set. As an overachiever, I used as many of the challenge elements that I could. Starting at the top of the list:
fiber or ribbon - fiber is attached to the raven charm
metal - metal raven charm and metal wire
paint - the backside of my cereal box is painted black
chalk - the design is highlighted with red chalk
deco paper - Edgar is printed on scrapbook paper
The dangle is also embellished with glass beads and red feathers.
I am entering this piece in the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad - #182 show some metal
Craft Punked - #31 at the movies
Octopode Factory - wings
Pile it On - #31 add some metal
That Crafty Place - things with wings
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
Catch the Bug - anything goes
Joanna Sheen - try something new
Smeared & Smudged - August Junk Funk - feathers
I hope you will take a minute to look at all the gorgeous artwork that can be found on the above mentioned sites.
