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!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
