Time for the Poe Blog Hop by LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Post and to See the Last Page of the Fat Page Book!

Finally, my last page of my fat page book containing all but three of the new releases by LeighSBDesigns for the Edgar Allan Poe Appreciation Blog Hop being held at the LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog!  I look forward to adding more pages as more spectacular digital images by Leigh are added to the Etsy Boutique!  Here we go with the images Edgar Allan Poe Portrait and Signature!

I only colored his eyes and tie as I wanted a vintage type look for this page.  Paper from the same paper pad with a strip of really cool vinyl type lace tape along the bottom that I bought in Japan for a dollar!  I stamped R.I.P. from my Halloween stamp stash with permanent black ink and used a tiny frame found hiding in my stash.  I also stamped all edges with black Distress Ink. 

If you haven't read the background story of Poe's actual life I encourage to do so.  He is famous now but never knew but few moments of fame when he lived and suffered so many deaths of those he loved in his short 40 years of life. Really interesting things!  Also if you get a chance to watch "The Raven" with John Cusack playing Poe, go for it!  It is a fictional tale of what might have caused Poe's death which to this date has never been really solved just guessed at by even the doctor's who were there when he died!

A hint with this link to the YouTube movie trailer HERE!

Hope you are enjoying the blog hop and leaving some Poe love to all!
