Alice in Wonderland Keepsake Display


I have always loved Alice In Wonderland, so I was very excited when I heard that there was a new immersive play happening at Waterloo Vaults. We went to see it as a pre birthday gift for myself! It was absolutely brilliant! Wheelchair users had to take a different route to everyone else, but I did not miss out on too much. It was great fun, apart from being soaked by Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum! 
I have a lot of Alice stamps and whatnots, so I decided to make this little keepsake display box so 
I would always remember my happy day. I found this box at the Ally Pally craft show last April.


I used pages from an old Alice book to line the little cubby holes, and for the inside roof I used the cover of the theatre programme, which featured alice falling down the rabbit hole. I used Indigoblu's gorgeous Grandma's Teacup acrylic paint to cover the outside of the box.


I stamp and heat embossed white roses down the sides of the roof.



To decorate the inside of the roof I stamped Alice and the White Rabbit onto shrink plastic, and then I gave them a drink from the bottle marked "drink me" and they both magically shrunk! The White Rabbit peeped out of the heart which I had outlined with a red glitter pen, and Alice sat on the shelf with the bottle, the Mad Hatters hat and a badge.


In the first cubby hole sits a rose made of book pages and of course it had to quickly be painted red, so the paint inevitably drips over the side, the Queen of Hearts is overseeing the whole event. Tea is then taking place with a stamped teapot and cup on shrink plastic, and the all important jam tarts made of chipboard and then painted. The third cubby hole has a cover from a little Alice bar of soap which I had. 


The fourth cubby hole has a shrunken stamped Alice with a special clock which I cut out from the programme. The fifth cubby hole holds a special real postage stamp, it was produced for the year of the child in 1979.Sitting in the six cubby hole is Humpty Dumpty.I made him with paper clay, it is only the second time I have used paper clay, it has a very different texture to regular clay. I made the wall with chipboard and texture paste. 




The last line of cubby holes features a picture cut from a tag that came with an Alice umbrella, a raven badge given out at the theatre, some pictures fussy cut from an Alice quiz game, and the final cubby hole has some words cut from my Ace of Clubs travel permit card which I was handed at the beginning of my Alice Underground experience.

I hope you have enjoyed visiting Alice and myself today, if you are coming to London this summer I highly recommend Alice Underground.

I would like to share this with the following challenges.

Alice in Wonderland in Making Cards Magazine

 


  
Today I was finally able to pick up a copy of Making Cards magazine!  I am so thrilled to be included in it! 
I just  loved making this Alice in Wonderland book with Indigoblu Stamps and paints. I was a bit nervous as it was the first time I had ever used paperclay, I wanted to make a cake stand, cup saucer etc it wasn't as difficult as I thought it might be - what a relief! All of the details of how I made the  Alice book are in  May's  Making Cards magazine.
 There is a wonderful free chevron stencil with the magazine and super cards made with it  by the very talented Tracy Evans plus very pretty papers!

Many thanks to Sally Jarvis for including me xx

Down the Rabbit Hole

Everyone wants to go down the Rabbit Hole with Alice. So we are going to create our very own Rabbits Hole card using pages from a vintage Alice in Wonderland book!

If you don't not have any old books, you can easily find them in charity shops, Jumble sales, and online auction sites.


I carefully removed 7 pages from an old vintage Alice in Wonderland book

I cut a circle in the first page and decreased the size of this circle on each following page.


I edged the inside of the circle with brown ink and adhered the pages on top of one another using clear 3D sticky pads

I watercoloured my stamped images of Alice, Leaves and a small Butterfly, and fussy cut each of them.



I mixed some Ruby Slippers paint into a spoonful of fine texture paste and swept it into one of the roses on the stencil.



I used a versamarker inkpad to stamp the script onto my 7x7 card blank. I used Teal luscious over the versamarker dabbing it lightly with a brush.

When the Rose was dry I brushed ultra thick Slap it on over it to give it a glossy finish.

I adhered Alice, the leaves and rose onto the Rabbit Hole

I adhered the rabbit hole onto the card and arranged the leaves and butterfly around it.


I added a finishing touch by stamping Alice onto the front of the envelope.I think I may add some colour to Alice...

There is lots more inspiration on the Indigoblu blog

Thank you so much for coming down the Rabbit Hole with me today. I hope to see you again soon.

Alice is in Winterland

Alice has fallen down the Rabbit Hole and has magically found herself in Winterland!

I created the background with watercolours and I used Indigoblu stamps for Alice and the tree.

I squeezed some glossy accents onto the top of the picture and let it drip down to look like icicles and then shook a generous amount of fine white glitter over the top.

I used glass beads at the bottom of the picture for Alice to stand on, I hope she does not get too cold!

Thank you so much for visiting myself and Alice today we are all mad here ; )

Lost Coast Stamps are holding a wonderful Alice in Winterland challenge, and their Design Team have created some lovely pieces! I would love to enter this into their challenge.

I would also like to enter it into the following challenges.

Happy 2017

Healthy and Happy 2017 !

My year with The Mixed Media Mojo Design Team has concluded, and this is my final project.I used the White Rabbit from Alice for my first project, so I thought I would use him again for my final project.




I carefully removed a page from my old Alice in Wonderland book.In the bottom left hand corner I used super thick Slap it on through the Indigoblu Rose Stencil.


I stamped Alice and the White Rabbit onto card and bought them to life with watercolours, and fussy cut them.


I randomly stamped some clocks and also added 2016 and 2017. On the top of the page I stamped some cascading raindrops.


I added some glossy accents over the top of the raindrops.

 

When dry I coloured the Rose blue, and adhered Alice and the White Rabbit onto the book page.


Play along with Mixed Media Mojo Challenge this month the theme is New and the twist is Clocks. There is a whole new Design Team so be sure to pay them a visit.


Thank you for visiting, may you enjoy every day of the new year.

Alice In Winterland

In the winter, Wonderland becomes Winterland, and Alice loves to walk in the snowy forest.

I painted the top of my 20cm (8inch) canvas with Iced Gem paint, and randomly painted on Snow White metallic paint on the bottom. I used the star stencil and Slap it On to add some raised stars to the top of the canvas and also painted those pink.

 

I used Archival Olive Ink pad to stamp the trees from the Winterland wood stamp set. I stamped the two distance trees without reinking the stamp, so it gave a more faded and distant look. I used white paint to add snow to the trees which was followed by flitterglu and white glitter.

 

I stamped and coloured Alice from the Indigoblu Alice stamp set, and stamped the bunnies in black Archival from the Winterland set. I fussy cut them all out and adhered them to the canvas.

I spread glass bead gel medium to the bottom of the canvas to give some glistening texture to the snow. When it was dry, I lightly added white paint to some areas.

 

I Die cut some snowflakes and stars in various sizes and covered them in Flitterglu and white glitter. I adhered them to the top of the canvas using sticky foam pads.

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope to see you again soon.

I would like to enter Alice in Winterland into the following challenges.
