Here's Manu - our DTMSM winner!

We're half way through the month so what better than to introduce Manu, of Vintagesavonette, who won the DTMSM (Design Team Members' Special Mention) Merit award in August and this is her fabulously inventive GDT project for today...

"I used Edgar Allan Poe's Poem "The Raven" as the inspiration for my altered book. I have carved two "Windows" into the book. The first portraying the raven. It can be closed by a dye-cut embossed cage which I added as a page. This is followed by a printed bat on transparency, cut out to shape and also added as a page which can be flipped either left or right. The second window is a little diorama with cut-out houses which are glued into the window in layers. The window can be opened from the back and I have put a little flickering artificial candle behind the scene which illuminates the houses from the background. Unfortunately, however, I was not able to show the great effect with my camera. So you have to take your imagination."
