I have been playing with Procreate on my iPad since before Christmas when my kids gave me the whole bundle. I don’t think this qualifies as an entry for Ike’s Show Us Your Pussycats Challenge but I thought I would share it. The image is a furr-bie (freebie) on the challenge blog this month. It is Cat Smiles and he is so darn cute! The very simple .gif occurred after a few hours lost in Youtube watching really talented folks do amazing things 😼.Ike’s Art and Ike’s World Challenges blog, too!

I am going with my second choice for today's post since life jumped in the way of my original plans! But that's ok because I learn something new every year about Poe and this year I discovered that the very famous artist Manet made illustrations from The Raven! I really loved his raven and it was included in a set of digital downloads from Mrs. Cogs Crafts! I plan on framing this with a new mat!
My little Poe doll was sitting on the shelf watching all the blog hop fun and feeling so left out! Better late than never, dear Poe! The image included the cool typewritten title and I really liked how it looked so I left it.
This is going in the last day of the blog hop and all the deets can be found HERE~ Also, check back at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog for the My Dark Valentine Blog Hop coming up in a couple of weeks!

I made a Poe theater years ago with royalty free images and digi images all from scrap. I was proud of it but when I saw this Poe Theater at Raidersofthelostart on Etsy it made me want to do it all over again! I ditched my drop from the ceiling characters and backdrops of years past and went with what I thought would be the best way. Then remembering how impossible it was to photograph anything on the inside of the theater I went with a modified version aka. lazy Nan way! I just cropped these and didn't mess with the photos and even threw in a behind the scenes look at the chaos that consumed my afternoon! The cat food box is not showing but that is the base! My house is a no throw zone for any packaging cardboard! And when these projects happen I just smile to myself and pat me on the back!
I love how sexy Poe is looking in this one! 😍

Welcome back for day 2 of the blog hop presented by LeighSBDesigns! I used the Edgar Allan Poe Portrait and Signature image (I didn't use the signature on this one 😋) by LeighSBDesigns! I added a funny sentiment and umbrella with rain in Cricut Design Space cause that is about the only design software I can manage to get to cooperate with me! Then just printed out on paper and used the Arteza watercolors. Still cannot get my printer to print on ANY kind of watercolor paper 😢...yep, definitely user error! I am not to blame for messing up the tape removal from this one either!
So check out the Blog Hop post HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog for all the details, a few simple rules and the linky party! See you there!
