I started off with a small 6 x 6 inch blank album on which the cover was embossed with 'Remember', I coloured the cover with Distress Stain in Black Soot and then used Rub'n'Buff to highlight the word. It reminded me of the line 'Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December, And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor' I stuck a royalty free image of Edgar Allan Poe to the cover and embellished it with a copper filigree corner and a small charm of a raven which I also used Rub'n'Buff on. I die cut some flowers in black crepe paper and gold tissue paper, sticking them to the cover also.
For the inner pages I used various papers and added both printed and stamped images to fit the theme of 'The Raven' I then tied the pages together with some black lace ribbon.
I'm really pleased with the result and hope you like it too.
Thanks for reading :o)
