There is a new challenge site called Quoth the Raven, Nevermore. Their first challenge is to create something with a raven. I read the poem and couldn't wait to get crafting.
I found an image on line and printed it onto a piece of scrapbook paper. I added some color with chalks. I laminated the design for stability. A small iridescent red seed bead was used for the raven's eye.
The base of my assemblage is constructed from two wooden spools. One spool has the words "the raven" decoupaged onto it. The other spool is wound with black eyelash yarn. The top of the spool is covered with mini black beads. I also added a tulle bow and black feathers to the composition.
I'm going to tweak this mixed media assemblage raven a bit, take some better photos in the daylight and then place it in my Etsy shop.
Along with Quoth the Raven, Nevermore; I am entering this assemblage in the following challenges:
Through the Craftroom Door - #18 anything but a card and DIY embellishment
CES Challenge - #69 anything but a card
Crafting When We Can - #10 something not intended for crafting
Please check out the design team samples on the above listed sites. You will be inspired to create a masterpiece of your own!
