"Nevermore" Altered Poe themed Box for Smudgy Antics!

Hello Friends!

DominoART is having a spooktacular time celebrating 15 Days of Half-O-Ween sponsored by Lost Coast Designs over on my DominoART Blog!  Dash on over and check out the scary creations.  On Wednesday it will be Day 8 already, the days sure fly by when you're having a spooktacular time ;0)

Day 7 was one of my projects and I shared my Poe inspired altered box which stands on two altered dominoes.  My "Nevermore" creation is also my Smeared Ink DT inspiration piece for week 2 of Smudgy Antics current Alter a Box challenge!

Also don't forget that this month's DominoART challenge is also Half-O-Ween themed so come and play with us!

Now for my spooky altered box!  Have you all been watching the tv series The Following with Kevin Bacon?  All the Poe symbolism is just down right creepy isn't it so I hope my altered box doesn't give you too many chills....bbbwaahhhaaa!  For more info and photos please see my post on DominoART!

  2. Leigh,
    This is a Truly awesome box. I know you like dominos I just made another one here is my blog: http://kristyleesworld.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/rsd-altered-domino-pendent/
    If you want to check it out.
    Did you not want any of the Glitter Gore Girls on dominoes???

    1. Thank you Kristy! I'm going to dash off now to look at your latest project! Yes, I did want one of your glitter gore girls and I posted a few times over at the forum but I don't think my posts showed up :0( I was hoping to share them during 15 Days of Half-O-Ween too and have one spot still available and if I could share them on that day that would be awesome! I posted the same question on the forum too ;0) lots of hugs!

  3. This box is so striking! It just makes you want to open those drawers and see what goodies are inside. Love how you made the base with the dominos. Wonderful box.


Thank you for visiting and leaving me some love, your comments are most appreciated!
Happy Stamping!
