"create something using one of his poems!"

I`ve made a tag using the poem " a dream within a dream"

First of all I printed out the text from the poem and added to tag.
Printed the digi stamp "Edgar Allen Poe - Quoth the Raven" from Smeared Ink out on silver vellum paper and added his portrait with Glossy accent. Covered the hole thing with Distress crackle paint - "clear rock candy" and set to dry.

Meanwhile I made my charm cluster. Painted the leaves with black acrylic paint and then sandpapered them to get the "worn" look.
Punched my tags with metal letters and hammer ( I don´t know what you call this technique in english) maybe it is "stamping on metal".

Thank You and Enjoy the Roll!

Love Love LOVE (understatement) the way you set up the poem in strips, and how they are coming off the edges of the tag! I think I need to get one of those metal stamps now, I've never really seen how they come out but your charms are awesome!

Absolutely stunning tag! Your stamped metal is a wonderful touch and I really like the technique you've used on Poe. You can see him and see through him too. Awesome!
