The Raven by Hannah Oxberry

With the theme being "Dark & Moody" I decided to take inspiration from the famous poem "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe.

I have used one of the brand new Mini Books Di will be bringing to her next Hochanda show. The fold out and contain lots of space to work in.

The front of the book cover has been decorated in a range of washes to give a dark and mysterious feel, while stamps of clock dials and script writing add another layer. The raven is stamped and heat embossed on deli paper and positioned next to printed text from the poem. A length of grey lace secures the book.

I have continued the last paragraph of the poem through the panels of the book, each featuring the same grungy layers as on the front cover.

For a full step by step please visit my blog that can be found here.

Thank you!
