Alice In Wonderland and ArtAnthology

Are you enjoying the Halloween hop so far?  There will be more spooky goodies in the second part of this post, but for now, I have another layout from the Alice altered book I've been creating in (in case you missed it, here is the COVER, and here is the first WHITE RABBIT layout), plus a little peek at an upcoming layout.

First we have Alice, printed over a print of the corresponding text from the story, the background spritzed with Dylusions Inks, and colored and haloed with PanPastels.

The keys are from an Altered Pages collage sheet, of course, and they're glittered up with Wink of Stella Pens.

 Still trying to capture glitter in a photograph--you can almost see the shimmer here:





Here is the peek of the next layout, Alice swimming in her pool of tears--the ArtAnthology Velvet paints are sheer enough you can see the lines of the printed drawing, yet thick enough to make some nice wave texture:

Of course, it would help if the photo were better--and yes, I added a little added glitter, just because . . .

Have a wonderful Thursday, and be sure to leave a comment to be part of the October drawing!!

  3. What a great blog post!
    The Alice coloring is just the best ... so crisp and clear and yet still looking old and vintage-y. L.O.V.E. it L.O.V.E. it L.O.V.E. it!!!
    And the greeting card is just perfect ... I have an idea - why don't you pack up all your INCREDIBLE creations and send them to me. I bet they'd like to live in my studio, inspiring me! :P

  12. The keys and keyholes are VERY Alice. I love how you tied those together. The Halloween card is perfectly sinister with its dark, gothic look! Was it a female vampire that lost that black lace?!?
