DUE DATE: October 15
EDGAR ALAN POE
Sign up by: anytime
Number of items: 3 for 3
Mixed Media Collage


For this swap we will be exploring the life and work of Edgar Alan Poe.


Here are some suggestions of ways to include Poe in your mixed media art:

* Collage or Stamped or Drawn images of Poe the man. An iconic and memorable face.
* You can illustrate a scene from one of his many stories or poems
* You can include symbols from his work, like Ravens, clocks, hearts etc.
* Create a portrait of Poe with a twist, something unexpected.
* Anything Poe related is welcome.


I'll keep adding to the list as I think of things and I hope you will feel free to make suggestions when you sign up!


Enjoy combining paper, rubber stamping, embossing, stencils, found poetry, and more. Just keep in mind that flat cards will travel most safely through the mail.

You are limited only by your imagination! Please do your best work and I encourage you to try something new.



* The due date is October 15, 2021

* ATCs must be made of sturdy material and precisely 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size. If you have questions joining this swap or mailing your Artist Trading Cards, please refer to this page: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8591

* US players should send a large address label and one US Forever stamp. I will provide envelopes. If you make bulky cards, please send a bit of extra postage if possible.

* International players should send $1 US or 1 US International postage stamp. ******** I will cover mailing costs for the first 3 internationals that let me know where they are from when they sign up.********

* Please share your ATCs on this thread if possible. You will inspire someone else!

* Sign up in this thread, and pm me for my address when you are ready to mail.

CastleQueen5
08-28-2021, 03:24 PM
I guess it was a sign up request, more of a pondering on my fate of finding my raven stamps, since my craft room is packed. BUT my stamps are in the rolling cart drawers, and labeled so maybe I can get to theme in the garage. Ravens here we come.

Yesterday I added some Ravens to some really cool, citrasolv backgrounds. Then I could not think of anything to add that was POE-like. I was at a friends house so my supplies were limited, and she is a perky pink type of artist.

So today I am going to do some google searching to get inspired. I

CastleQueen5

Well that being said I found lots of quotes to add to the ravens.

CastleQueen5
08-30-2021, 05:26 PM
I found this website for helping me decide if my rubber stamp is a Raven or a Crow. The site was great, I still dont know though. I will do the art and decide later if it fits the swap.

RaineyDay
08-31-2021, 12:30 PM
CastleQueen5, I looked at the site you shared. I think these two birds are so similar in looks that it is difficult to tell them apart. For this swap, if there is a black bird on the ATC, I'm calling it a raven. LOL.

CynthiaSillitoe
08-31-2021, 10:41 PM
I'm in, too. I didn't think I would have the right stuff for this and I never did find my raven stash, but I got very carried away with Annabel Lee in the meanwhile. I need to finish the last card and then can get them scanned and in the mail.

CastleQueen5
09-01-2021, 07:24 AM
I was pretty dragged into a few of his poems, Lenore was one of his loves, Annabelle too. I could read them again, and not feel depressed.

CastleQueen5..... I am worried about your mail situation. Where will you live that your post office is 203 miles away????

There is a town called TOMBSTONE, ever heard of it? Is is south of Tucson. Well I am moving to the Dragoon Mountain area. Tombstone on one side and PEARCE/sunsites on the other side of the mountains.

I will be one mile from the Pearce Post office. Here in Phoenix, I am also one mile from the PO. Phoenix proper has
1.633 million (2019) people. Pearce has about 1,633. Both cities depend on how you count.


Pearce, Arizona, and Sunsites, Arizona, are adjacent unincorporated communities in the Sulphur Springs Valley of Cochise County, Arizona, United States. The two communities are often referred to as Pearce-Sunsites, Pearce/Sunsites, or Pearce Sunsites.[1][2]

Pearce is located between the Cochise Stronghold,[3] Chiricahua National Monument,[4] and the winter Sandhill Crane refuge of Whitewater Draw[5] making it popular for birders, history buffs, hikers, and climbers alike. At 4,400 feet of elevation, the area is also known for its milder summers which make it ideal for quality grapes and vineyards (recognized as an American Viticultural Area).[6]

Pearce is best known as a historic ghost town. Sunsites, founded in 1961, adjoins Pearce, and the Sunizona and Richland developments are nearby. All of these communities share the Pearce, Arizona post office and ZIP code, 85625. The 85625 ZIP Code Tabulation Area, which includes the four communities named plus a large surrounding rural area, had a population of 2104 at the 2000 census.[8] and 1983 in the 2010 census.[9] The Pearce-Sunsites economy is based on retirees and tourism.

Do you think Poe was having good hair days or bad hair days or what? :err: Like, didn't it take forever to get your photograph taken back then? So he sat with his hair like that on purpose.

If my cards do not meet the mixed media criteria or if they are too late, just return them to me. I will post the cards to the thread later today but I am I a hurry to get them before the morning mail pick up.
