Took H.P. Lovecraft's poem "Nyarlathotep", and translated it phonetically into Egyptian hieroglyphs, added the cartouche with the name/title, and then some Egyptian-style pictures for effect. Placed all on top of a pic of papyrus.

Then took a pic of some worn fabric, highlighted the edges and coloured it black, then removed the worn fabric. Pasted this on top of the papyrus to give it that "ancient scrap of papyrus" look.

Nicely done. There was an individual hieroglyph for 'hotep' though, so that part wouldn't need to be written phonetically.
