So when I saw the challenge for Quoth the Raven with so many things to pick to use, I had already made my little Poe puppet (yes it is impossible to make a brooding Poe puppet! After many tries I gave it up.) The first backdrop was a graveyard scene from the museum releases and added the fabulous Ike's "Poe's Death Bed" when I saw the challenge theme. Poe and the clay moon with a really weird face made from a Barbie doll mold I attempted, unexpected result! They hang from a silver thin cord from a cardboard strip across the top, two strips for depth and layering. Black lace, purple flowers, Poe written in foil tape for faux metal, purple air dry clay skull guarding the stage, and red on the awesome image from Ike's Art.

I have ideas swimming in my head for my little theater oh I mean Master Poe's theater. He has agreed to share the stage with others just no poets, writers of any kind! So of course I have agreed. Take a look at the new challenge up at Quoth the Raven with special guest designer Susan, a totally awesome, lovely person, and while you are there pick 3 any 3 and pleaseth thy Master...sorry, really cannot pull off that language thing!
May I enter this at the following challenges:
