What was your inspiration?
A lifelong love for Edgar Allen Poe and the approach of Halloween inspired the piece.
What are you most proud of?
I like the touches of red in various places, especially on the letters. It's hard to add color to tiny pieces of lettering without overdoing it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient when placing teeny tiny paper letters on anything!! Tweezers, good lighting and some reading glasses for magnification help.
