Welcome to the March Member Blog Hop at Smeared & Smudged. The theme this month is "Mixed-Media Mash Up". I decided to alter a coffin. The theme for my coffin is from "Edgar Allen Poe's" - "Premature Burial". I first painted the coffin with brown paint (2 coats). I then made some templates for the inside of the coffin. I took strips of white cotton material and using the background mesh stamp from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven, I stamped all over the material, I then used this to cover the templates and then glued them into place inside the coffin. I made a small pillow from the same material. The hand rails and pole holding the bell were made from bamboo skewers cut to size and coloured with a gold promarker. I made the ends of the handrails smaller with a craft knive and then stuck on gold beads. These were glued onto the coffin using a glue gun. The bell was attached with string. I then placed my man into the coffin sitting up and tied the other end of the string to his hand. The coffin lid was glued open using the glue gun. I had a lot of fun making this and hope you like it. The blog hop list is below the photo have fun and don't forget to leave a comment on the participants work.
I will be entering my coffin into the following challenges:
