Happy Birthday Poe!

Poe signature

January 19th marked the 202nd birthday for Edgar Allan known for his tales of mystery and the macabre.

The eBay group Primitive Folk Art Talk & Tea is having a POE Challenge to celebrate Edgar's Birthday!
Below is the "Happy Birthday Poe" Mixed Media hang tag/ornament that I made for this special occasion.
Just click on the picture to go to the eBay Auction.....

I made this hang tag from a coffee dyed tag, painted it black and distressed it to make it look old. I added the finely detailed portrait print, hand stitching and a touch of whimsy in his party hat and baloon that were made from the pages of an early 1900's book.
