January S&S Member Blog Hop - ANYTHING GOES!

It's that time again! Time for the Smeared and Smudged member blog hop. It's been a long time since I was able to get crafty so this was a much welcomed Anything Goes challenge! Here is the blog roll for all the participating hoppers this time around. Have fun and we hope you get plenty of inspiration!

Now, on to my offering for today's hop. I have lots of photos to show my process so bare with me. :)
My mom gave me an awesome ring that she found while shopping some junk sales. The only problem is that I'm not a fan of gold…especially when it's costume jewelry. But….the other features of this ring were too awesome to just toss aside...
…as you can see….pretty cool, huh?
So, I decided I wanted to give it a new paint job and make it something that I would love to wear. It started with some Patina paints, some black acrylic paint, some paper towels, some sticky jewels and some glossy accents! 

Wooooo….it was fun. I used Edgar from Smeared Ink's Quoth the Raven set. I took the digi into photoshop and made him REALLY small and added "Nevermore" above his head. Once printed I glued him on, framed him up and glossed him down :)
Hope you like it! I'll also be entering it over at QTR - Quest #28 - Anything Poes Challenge.

Thanks for looking!
