Strange Encounters: Edgar Allan Poe meets Little Red Riding Hood

Well, things didn't work out EXACTLY the way I planned. It took a little longer than I thought it would - but here's a look at my new Edgar Allan Poe wreath:

" 'I believe that demons take advantage of the night to mislead the unwary' -- 'although, you know,' he added, 'I don't believe in them.' "
- Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849)

 And, BONUS!!! Here's my new Little Red Riding Hood collage:

"And when she said, "Good morning," there was no answer. Then she went to the bed and drew back the curtains; there lay the grandmother with her cap pulled over her eyes, so that she looked very odd.
"O grandmother, what large ears you have got!"
"The better to hear with."
"O grandmother, what great eyes you have got!"
"The better to see with."
"O grandmother, what large hands you have got!"
"The better to take hold of you with."
"But, grandmother, what a terrible large mouth you have got!"
"The better to devour you! And no sooner had the wolf said it than he made one bound from the bed, and swallowed up poor Little Red Riding Hood."
 - from Little Red Riding Hood, Grimm's Fairy Tales by Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm
