Thank You Canvas Corp! Edgar Allen Poe Collage

The highlight of my week was getting an email from Jenn at Canvas Corp letting me know that I won their recent Facebook Halloween giveaway! Squeal!! I. LOVE. THEIR. STUFF! And it was even shipped out immediately and I received it on Thus! Wanna see?
Canvas Corp Halloween
An assortment of papers, a chunky canvas, a burlap canvas, notecards, clothespins, canvas and burlap banner pieces. I had to play with it immediately! My Halloween mantle already had an Edgar Allen Poe / black and neutral theme and one of the papers was Poe’s “The Raven” written on kraft paper so I got an idea to add one more piece.
Canvas Corp Poe Collage
I found a royalty free line drawing of Edgar Allen Poe online, downloaded, and printed on a plain piece of kraft colored cardstock. Cut and tore pieces of “The Raven” and black and white diamond Canvas Corp papers ( it was meant to be since I already used the same paper on my “Witches Ball” piece) and put on either side of the picture. Cut banner pieces from black and gold metallic scraps and put those along the top.

Canvas Corp Poe
I cut a “P” from black vinyl using my “Wall Décor and More” Cricut cart, and also a black bird silhouette to represent a raven. The frame is a plain wood frame from Dollar Tree that I painted. To finish, I made rolled roses and freehand cut leaves from paper scraps and hot glued those to glass and frame.

I already had a piece representing “The Raven” from last year so this went perfectly with the rest of my Poe themed décor. Thank you SO much Jenn and Canvas Corp! Can’t wait to play with more from my wonderful package!
