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!!

    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?!?

 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.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
