Gingersnap Creations "Horror Stories"
Horror Stories." Our inspiration for the entire month of October is Edgar Allan Poe... how fun is that?!? I decided to use The Fall of the House of Usher as the inspiration for my piece - the poem within the story (from which the quote is taken); the narrator's vision of the fissure that extended from the top to the bottom of the house, with its "vacant eye-like windows"; the ghost of the sister, Madeline. All of the stamps used are from Oxford Impressions - "Haunted" and "Trick or Treat." All of the DT's projects are so wonderful, I hope you'll have time to go take a look. There's so much cool stuff gong on over at Gingersnap Creations this month... with AlphaStamps is our sponsor, and Mary Green (of gluebook fame!) as our muse.... you won't want to miss it. ;)
