POE-fect challenge

This is my entry for a fun challenge for September over at the fabulous House of Bears blog  based on quotes

So this is a digital page based on a quote by Edgar Allen Poe........ 'I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat'

I used tubes to make this but the background paper I made a few weeks ago. Although darkened this down to blend in with the rest of the elements I used, it was actually made up of photos of wood planks, screws and a metallic blobby pattern on an old t-shirt  - only the blobby bits down front are showing though....

to see more about this challenge please visit The house of bears


  1. Oh goody, we were really hoping that someone would choose this quote, and we just love your interpretation of it, the lady at her desk looks like she's very busy trying to replicate the cat's success. Love the many layers and the colours you've chosen really fit the Poe theme. Thank you so much for joining in with us this month,

  2. Impressive - haven't got a clue about digital art! :)

  3. Amazing digital creation as always Gibby and very apt for the quote that you have chosen

    Love Chrissie x

  4. How awesome! Love the scene you created and the fun way you used the Poe quote with that great cat!!

  5. Fantastic page, love it :)
    Great concoction for the background.
    How do you dream up these mixes they are brilliant!

  6. Wow Gill, fabulous page. So envious of anyone who can get to grips with digi! Love the images you've chosen and the composition is great. MMx

  7. This is such a brilliant page Gibby. I havent done much digital scrapping so can i ask what the tubes are that you refer to?

  8. Hi Gibby, thanks for your comments. I have never heard .png files called that. But what a great idea that it dosent have a background. I really fancy getting into digital scrapbooking. What software do you recommend?
