Happy Alice In Wonderland Day



HAPPY ALICE DAY !

To celebrate the day I have made this Mad Hatters Top hat, and decorated it with all wonderful things Alice.




I used numerous stamps and added colour with Watercolours, and fussy cut them all.



I also used some mini playing cards, and painted chipboard pieces. 
I did lots of tricky and challenging gluing so everything would stand up in place.


I wanted the hat to look Wonderland wonderful from every side.
I made roses from vintage Alice book pages. 
I also added dried flowers and moss to enhance her Wonderland garden.

It was a lot of fun to create my Mad Hatters Hat. it is impossible to list all of the items I used, but some of them are 
Chipboard top Hat is from Tando Creative.
Alice sitting stamp is from Dolly Dimples
The White Rabbit and King of Hearts stamps are by Crafty Secrets.
The sentiment is by Carabelle Studio
The jugs etc are by Artful Days they had an Alice themed monthly box last year.

Thank you somuch  for visiting Alice today, have a wonderful day! 
I would love  to enter my Mad Hatters Hat into the following challenges.

Alice in Doodle Land !


Hello how are you today? Did you also have the terrible thunder storms? Hopefully summer will arrive shortly! 

I don’t usually share my art journal pages as they are for my own personal scribbles, but this months Paperbabe challenge is Doodles. So what better place to doodle than in your art journal. I have not done much doodling before except while waiting on the phone! 

I love Alice in Wonderland so I decided to do a quick scribbly sketch of  her. It was the  first time I had used my water soluble  sketching pencil, it worked quite well. Although I was a bit heavy handed sketching in places so the pencil did not blend completely.  I used Watercolours to give Alice some colour. Of course Alice’s roses are meant to be red,  but I don’t have any red ink. So I loaded up pink in my pen, but it must have mixed with some residual blue as it came out a sort of purple! Oh well never mind ! 

My writing is terrible but I included my favourite quote by Lewis Carroll 

“ imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality “

There is an actual Offical Alice day every year and this year it is on 7th July. I think I should blog something special on that day. Would anyone like to join in, I know lots of us love Alice?  

Thank you for stopping by today, happy crafting!
