The Gold Bug

Poe's version that is. A short story as opposed to a poem but still well worth a read or two.
Quoth the Raven blog has set this month's quest as representing  what this story says to us. I have been tardy and not completed the many projects pictured in my head for this challenge blog, for this I apologise, as it is run by some good friends and fellow DT members on other challenge blogs. Slap me now or forever keep your peace dears xx  lol.
This piece started life so very different from the finished project. I just couldn't seem to fit in what I wanted to. This ended up being a fat book page instead of the ATC I planned. Oh well! The best laid plans ... etc.
You want to see the picture of course....
Front page

and underneath 

The images of the treasure map and Skull and Crossbones are from Delicious Doodles. The goat is from Reusable art - a site with royalty free images.
The gold bug itself was from google images, printed 6 times and layered up before coating with UTEE.

I am entering this into the challenge at
