A new challenge has been posted and the Quoth the Raven website is all about RAVING RAVENS! The interpretation of this challenge is totally up to you, just as long as it is related in some way to Edgar Allan Poe.

I wanted to use another of the digital backgrounds I purchased from Smeared Ink called Poe Boy Digital Paper Pack (set of 8).  I ended up using a full background, then printed and cut the raven from a second. The quote I used is from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.  You can read the poem in its entirety here.  (The quote is the first line of the last verse.)

I used a strip of washi tape from my stash so that the raven might have something upon which to "sit" as the quote reads.  The quote was computer generated, then printed directly onto the background.

I hope you will find some time during the month of May to create something for this great challenge.  Thank you for stopping by today! Both your visits and your comments mean a lot to me.
