QUOTE THE RAVEN CHALLENGE #42: DREAM ON! (WEEK 3)


It is Week 3 of the Quoth the Raven, Nevermore Challenge, and I am here to remind and inspire you to come play with us!  For the inspiration for today's art, I chose part of Edgar Allan Poe's work "Dreams."  You can read the full poem here.  

The Poe image I used in my project today is a stamp from Carmen's Veranda.  The background paper is called Poe Boy and was purchased as a digital download (including 7 other backgrounds) from Smeared Ink.  




I hope you can find time to get inspired by Edgar Allan Poe and our "Dream On!" challenge this month. This challenge is subject to your personal interpretation; the only rule is that it must--in some way--be related to Edgar Allan Poe.
