an altered Alice book with Altered Pages and ArtAnthology

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I've been working on another altered book, this one with an Alice In Wonderland theme.  Here is the cover--it has a niche full of Alice related items:

Some delicious ArtAnthology Baby Blue Eyes Sorbet paint cut with gesso added a tint to the fabric cover, and on the back of the book cover, you can see the paint "straight"--such a pretty color--used with a stencil:
back cover--the edges are distressed with crayon

I'll be sharing layouts from the book with you as things progress--I'm thinking the Baby Blue Eyes should make for some great water effects, as it has wonderful texture when applied more thickly than I used it here . . . thank you for stopping by, and don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the October draw for some yummy ArtAnthology and Altered Pages products.

  1. Both projects are over the top wonderful!!! Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories and the white rabbit Halloween themed is spooky fun! Awesome job ladies!

  2. My favorite post in awhile - I am engrossed in anything "Alice" related -and both of these are delightful. I love Trisha's altered book - and that fab frame that she used around the niche really gives it a wonderful old world feeling - can't wait to see what she's going to do with it from here. And Lyneen's spooky White Rabbit card is delightful - funny how Alice in Wonderland fits so perfectly into Hallowe'en themes! Thanks for the great post!

 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.
